CInternetSession - invalid handle type

I use CInternetSession to get HTTP files. My application is multi-threaded. The code to get the files is like this:


CHttpConnection* pServer = NULL;
     CHttpFile* pFile = NULL;

    TRY
    {
          if (mysession == NULL) mysession = &defaultsession;
          mysession->SetOption(INTERNET_OPTION_CONNECT_TIMEOUT, 1000 * 20);
          mysession->SetOption(INTERNET_OPTION_CONNECT_BACKOFF, 1000);
          mysession->SetOption(INTERNET_OPTION_CONNECT_RETRIES, 2);

          CString s = url;
          //CStdioFile *remotefile = mysession.OpenURL(s,1,INTERNET_FLAG_TRANSFER_BINARY);
         
          CString strServerName;
          CString strObject;
          INTERNET_PORT nPort;
          DWORD dwServiceType;
          const TCHAR szHeaders[] =_T("Accept: */*\r\n");

          if (!AfxParseURL(s, dwServiceType, strServerName, strObject, nPort))
          {
          }
          //DWORD time = GetTickCount();
          pServer = mysession->GetHttpConnection(strServerName, nPort);
          //TRACE("get connection:%d\n",GetTickCount()-time);
          //time = GetTickCount();
          pFile = pServer->OpenRequest(CHttpConnection::HTTP_VERB_GET, strObject);
          pFile->AddRequestHeaders(szHeaders);
          if (!pFile->SendRequest()) {
               AfxMessageBox("Failed");
               THROW(new CException());
          }
         
          //TRACE("Send request:%d\n",GetTickCount()-time);
          //time = GetTickCount();
     
          DWORD dwRet;
          pFile->QueryInfoStatusCode(dwRet);

Error occurs at QueryInfoStatusCode call. The stack trace is:

CInternetFile::AssertValid() line 1307 + 25 bytes
CHttpFile::AssertValid() line 2281
AfxAssertValidObject(const CObject * 0x009e31c0 {FILE*=0x00000000 name=???}, const char * 0x5f4cdb80 THIS_FILE, int 2225) line 108
CHttpFile::QueryInfoStatusCode(unsigned long & 3435973836) line 2226
GetHttpFile(CString {"http://203.239.186.211:8080/webdemo/kyoto/map01.ipq/a1"}, unsigned char * & 0xcccccccc, int & -858993460, CInternetSession * 0x009e5678 {CInternetSession}) line 468

The code of CInternetFile where error occurs is:

if (IsKindOf(RUNTIME_CLASS(CHttpFile)))
          {
               ASSERT(dwResult == INTERNET_HANDLE_TYPE_HTTP_REQUEST);
          }

Value of dwResult is 4096 (INTERNET_HANDLE_TYPE_HTTP_REQUEST is 13).

I have one default session for generic requests (single threaded), some other sessions (one at a time) to retrieves many files (multi-threaded). The errors occurs on both types of session.
Any idea to get over this?

Hi!
it seems like OpenRequest return wrong pointer
can you check every WinInet Call result?
You can call GetLastError API to get WinInet call reslts.

The problem was that multi threads accessing the same internet session may cause problem. I think Internet session is not thread-safe. I create separated internet session for each thread and it's ok now.
