You have an application that uses the Common Programming Interface for Communications (CPI-C) programming interface in a Microsoft Host Integration Server 2010 environment. When you run the application, you may receive an exception message that resembles the following:
    0xc0000008 - An invalid HANDLE was specified.


This issue may occur when you try to implement a Cancel_Conversation call (function name cmcanc) to cancel outstanding CPI-C operations. In this case, a race condition may occur and cause the routing control block (RCB) to be freed two times.
