#4352 closed Bugs (fixed)

[interprocess] (Windows) boot stamp method produces inconsistent results, causing failure

Reported by: David M. Cotter <me@…> Owned by: Ion Gaztañaga
Milestone: Boost 1.45.0 Component: interprocess
Version: Boost 1.44.0 Severity: Showstopper
Keywords: interprocess boot time stamp Cc: me@…


see this ticket: however this problem is much worse: when running in a VM (eg: parallels) repeated calls (without waiting) to get_system_time_of_day_information() return DIFFERENT numbers in the field. because of this, shared memory always fails.

current "workaround" is to do this: &= 0xFFFFFFFF00000000; after every call.
