1.30 WINDOWS kbprg kbfixlist kbbuglist

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Win32s version 1.3

The following is a list of the known bugs in Win32s version 1.25a that were fixed in Win32s version 1.3.

  • DeviceCapabilities() with DC_BINS and DC_PAPERS are thunked incorrectly. The array should be left as is.
  • SearchPath() and OpenFile() don't work properly with OEM chars in the filename.
  • GetSystemInfo() doesn't set correct ProcessorType for the Pentium.
  • FindResource() returns a non-NULL handle for a nonexistent resource.
  • VirtualProtect() with anything other than PAGE_NOACCESS, PAGE_READ, OR PAGE_READWRITE yields unpredictable page protections.
  • GetWindowTextLength() and GetWindowText() incorrectly sign-extend the return value.
  • MoveFile() fails on Windows for Workgroups when the source is remote and the destination is local.
  • PrintDlg() GP faults if the PRINTDLG structure has an illegal size (size other than 42).
  • Loading resources may cause memory and selector leakage. The leakage occurs when the resource is loaded from a DLL.
  • FP context is corrupted when an FP exception occurs while using the FP emulator.
  • If a window class defined in one DLL uses a window function in another DLL and this DLL is unloaded before the DLL that defines the window class, a general protection (GP) fault occurs in WIN32S16.DLL when you terminate the process from a debugger.
  • GetBitmapBits() and SetBitmapBits() return the wrong value. The return code is not converted from dx:ax to eax.
  • FindResource() does not set the last error code to a proper value.
  • NLS APIs fail when AnsiCP in the [NLS] section of WIN32S.INI is set to the code page of the machine (473 on U.S. machines).
  • _tzset() in CRTDLL.DLL can cause a general protection (GP) fault.

In addition, there were several bugs fixed in the Windows NT FP emulator. These fixes were are included in Win32s.
