The implementation of HTTP_QUERY_FLAG_REQUEST_HEADERS flag on the method 'BOOL CHttpFile::QueryInfo(DWORD dwInfoLevel, CString& str, LPDWORD lpdwIndex) const'
fails with an assertion in inet.cpp, line 2307 (VC 9.00), line 2321 (VC 11.00) or line 2319 (VC 12.00).

The reason is that the assert checks ASSERT(dwInfoLevel <= HTTP_QUERY_MAX) while HTTP_QUERY_FLAG_REQUEST_HEADERS is much larger than that.

Because it is an assert it only pops up in debug. But is still annoying..

In my application I use the HTTP_QUERY_RAW_HEADERS_CRLF | HTTP_QUERY_FLAG_REQUEST_HEADERS flags to retrieve the request headers.

My working environment is Windows 2008 Server (with service packs), Windows 7 Pro (SP1), Windows 8 Pro.
Development in C++ using both Visual Studio 2008 (All SPs and updates), Visual Studio 2012 (Update 4, RC3) and Visual Studio 2013 RTM.

VS2013 Update 2 still doesn't fix this.

Does anyone monitor this thread or is it put on a dead end trail?

Sorr, I use VS2013 Premium with Update 1; NOT the Ultimate edition :)

Sorry that I didn't update this thread, but I've been developing in VS2013 Ultimate (with Update 1) for a few months now and the problem still exists.
I've understand that there is an Update 2 upcoming for VS2013. I didn't try that so far.

So still no fix; but as mentioned in VS2013 RC the problem was solved but somehow it got back?

Does anybody tracks these items?
It has been quite a while now but it seems that nobody can give me an answer, positive or negative, whether this will be fixed soon?

It only occurres in _DEBUG but nonetheless it is very annoying during my development testing..

Just got the VS2013 RTM installed and to my surprise the ASSERT is back!?
After looking more in inet.cpp I found that an ASSERT is placed where it was removed in the VS2013 RC..

The VS2013 RC worked without a problem but the VS2013 RTM ASSERTs so I think this is a regression of some sort?

Also please consider fixing it in VS2012 Update 4 RTM?

In VS2012 Update 4 RC3 this isn't fixed, possibly you can fix it in the Update 4 RTM?

Hi Pat,

I can confirm that it is fixed in VS2013 / RC

Hello Albert,

Thanks for the report. This invalid assertion has been removed from MFC for Visual Studio 2013 RTM.

A demo project is attached now.
It is a solution for VS2008 but can easily be converted to VS2012.

Best regards,
