Pocket PC 2002 Stops Responding When SHGetFileInfo Is Called Immediately After a Reset
This article was previously published under Q311277
When the Today plug-in uses a SHGetFileInfo
call immediately after a reset, your device may stop responding (hang). After this occurs, you must reset your device, and this may result in the loss of all data on your device.
This issue can occur because if your device is not fully initialized after a reset, the SHGetFileInfo
call can cause the device to stop responding.
This issue only applies to a device that is running the Pocket PC 2002 operating system. Devices that are running Pocket PC 2000 or earlier do not exhibit this behavior.SHGetFileInfo
should not be called during a reset initialization process. The Today plug-in should defer such action until the device is known to be done with the reset initialization.
