Error 12007 from HttpSendRequest when running from network location on Windows 8 Developer Preview RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm getting error 12007 when calling HttpSendRequest() in an application that is being run from a network location on Windows 8 Developer Preview.  The problem goes away if I copy the application locally to the Windows 8 system or if I run the application from a media location.  I've done some searching around and can't seem to find a solution.

    As a test, I created a test application using the example code found in KB 839873 that describes a similar issue with IE 6 a long time ago.  This test code successfully reproduces the issue I'm seeing.

    Is there something that has changed with WinINet on Windows 8 that would cause this behavior?  If so, what is the workaround?

  • Hi Jason,


    I think your issue should be raised in the Windows Developer Preview: General OS questions. I believe they will know more information of this issue than us, and I will move this one to that forum.


    Thanks for your understanding,


    Best regards,
