HTTP 12150 error when doing a post - possible registry issue?
Posted on 2006-05-23
Recently various members of our organization started getting a strange HTTP 12150 error when trying to open a third party application from their desktop. We have done some troubleshooting and found that the error occurs whenever a "post" http transaction is run from this application, but not when a "get" function is used. We have written sample programs that are generic and experience the same thing.
This has happened to a number of users in our group that at one point could use the software, leading us to think that it could have something to do with some sort of application/operating system update that is being pushed to our computers. We cannot confirm, however.
What we DO know is this: if a user that is getting the error logs out and a different user logs in to the same machine and tries to operate the same functionality, it works. We are not sure why this is occurs. We thought it could be due to the registry settings, but I do not know where to begin to troubleshoot this one.
We are using Windows XP SP2
Can anyone help?
