Cant write IStream::Write due to insufficient disk space

Hi!
I'm working on VC++ on windows 2000.
Anyway I have used OpenStreamOnFile to get an IStream pointer to
an XML file. When I tried to write to the Istream it returned
Error: 0x80030070 - There is insufficient disk space.
There is no problem of disk space on my hard drive of course.
Anyone got a clue why IStream::Save is failing ?

The code goes like that:



HRESULT     hr = OpenStreamOnFile (MAPIAllocateBuffer, MAPIFreeBuffer,STGM_READ | STGM_WRITE, xmlFile, NULL, &pXmlStream);

char buff[100]="Hello";

LARGE_INTEGER li = {0, 0};
HRESULT _hh = pXmlStream->Seek(li,STREAM_SEEK_SET,NULL);
         
unsigned long  x;
hr  = pXmlStream->Write(buff,5,&x);


Thanks you.

You initialization of 'LARGE_INTEGER' seems a bit 'problematic' - try

__int64 i = 0;

LARGE_INTEGER li;

li.QuadPart = i;

HRESULT _hh = pXmlStream->Seek(li,STREAM_SEEK_SET,NULL);

BTW, you do not have to seek to the beginning of a file you open...

Its not connected in any way to the pXmlStream->Seek.
HRESULT from seek is 0 (success) and even without
the Seek it fails with the same problem.

Hmm, is the file you are opening read-only? (Yes, it'd be a stupid error code, but...)

hi ronibr,
Are you still interested in solving this problem?  If so, post the failing code (the code that returns the error hr)  Writing to one of these kind of streams is trickier than it looks...
