Consider the following scenario:

  • You run a Windows Embedded Compact 7-based image that contains the Storage Manager components on a device.

  • You install the Encfilt.dll encryption filter on a partition that is full.

  • You perform one of the following actions:

    • You copy an existing file to a new file on the partition by running a managed application that calls the File.Copy method. The application shows that you successfully copied the file.

    • You copy an existing file to a new file on the partition by running a native application that calls the CopyFile function. The CopyFile function returns the value "False".

  • You call the GetLastError function to return error information.

In this scenario, the GetLastError function does not return an error code for the application.
