GetFile() failing on large files (Unknown error (0x2ee2))

Apr 22, 2011 at 6:15 AM

I'm receiving a Win32 Exception when using GetFile() on large files.  I can see that the download is working by looking at the destination folder during the download, but at the end, I receive the error and the file then disappears.

That error is a time out error. It looks like there may be a hotfix available:

It appears that this Hotfix applies to Windows NT 4.0 but I'm seeing it on a machine running Windows Server 2003.  Any ideas?

The error code is still just a timeout error. One way or another you are timing out.

i'm having the same problem on GetFiles(), when there is a large amount of files.  is there anyway to control the timeout in the library??  or on the server?  when using an ftp app (like FileZilla), it doesn't time out, connects fine, although it takes prob 30-45 seconds to bring back a list of files.

Anyone have found the solution for this? Same problem here with large files in Windows Azure VM.
