An application may stop responding in Windows Server 2008 or in Windows Vista when the application closes a socket connection or shuts down

Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista.
  • You have an application that calls the WSASocket function to create sockets and that calls the SetHandleInformation function to set the socket attribute on the computer.
  • The application also creates child processes.
  • The application closes a socket connection or shuts down.

In this scenario, the application may stop responding.
