If a Win32 CPIC application is supporting multiple conversations using non-blocking mode, the application may stop unexpectedly while issuing a new CMINIT (Initialize_Conversation).
Under certain circumstances, the Win32 CPIC and APPC libraries can get into a deadlock condition. Note that the CPIC library (Wcpic32.dll) communicates through the APPC library (Wappc32.dll). The deadlock can occur under the following circumstances:
- When CMINIT issues a TP_STARTED while holding an internal CPIC critical section. If another APPC verb completes asynchronously while the TP_STARTED is running, the CPIC application may deadlock.
- When the CPIC library calls into WinAPPCCancelConversation() while holding the internal CPIC critical section. The thread that makes this call immediately blocks while trying to obtain the APPC critical section, which is held by the APPC callback thread, which is waiting for CPIC lock.
