New Verifier Pool Checks In LH
Hector J. Rodriguez | Published: 11-May-04| Modified: 11-May-04
As of Windows codename Longhorn, Driver Verifier will now catch invalid pool tags specified with ExAllocatePoolWithTag(). If an invalid tag is specified with ExAllocatePoolWithTag() and Driver Verifier is turned on with pool tracking selected, your system will crash. The bug check code will be 0xC2: BAD_POOL_CALLER, with the violation type (parameter 1) of 0x9D.

"Tags must be made from a subset of ASCII"
ASCII values above 127 are not valid in a Tag, at least the last time I checked the ExAllocatePoolWithTag reference.
