Introduction

This article describes an issue that generates an invalid event handle error in Windows Embedded Compact 2013. An update is available to resolve this issue. Before you install this update, all previously issued updates for this product must be installed.

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You open a socket from a kernel driver and use an asynchronous IO on the socket in Windows Embedded Compact 2013.

  • You run the WSAEventSelect function together with the FD_CLOSE flag, and then you use the CloseSocket function to close the socket.

  • You call the WaitForSingleObject function that uses the same event handles that are used for the WSAEventSelect function.


In this scenario, the WaitForSingleObject function returns a WAIT_FAILED response. After the call to the CloseSocket function, the WSAEnumNetworkEvents and WSAWaitForMultipleEvents functions fail with a WSA_INVALID_HANDLE error.

Note The nonblocking CloseSocket function starts a graceful socket closure. This process may involve some data exchange. The calling driver must be able to use the WSAWaitForMultipleEvents and WSAEnumNetworkEvents functions in order to wait for a graceful socket closure.
