Consider the following scenario. You have a client computer that is running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista. You also have a server that is running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista. You run an application that uses the named pipes protocol to transfer data between the client computer and the server. After interprocess communication (IPC) between the client computer and the server runs for some time, the application is aborted on the client computer. Additionally, you receive the following error code:

Error code 1450 (ERROR_NO_SYSTEM_RESOURCES)

When this problem occurs, the value of the Pool Nonpaged Bytes performance counter keeps increasing. If you use a memory monitoring tool to monitor the memory pool, you see that the memory leak occurs in the nonpaged pool and in the SmMs tag.

Note: This problem does not occur if the server runs Windows XP or Windows Server 2003.
