Full Version: http.sys: Error decoding URL style (%XX) encoded string at position 43

I think I found a problem with decoding query strings in applications built with http.sys.

If I try to open this in an application made with indy, everything works fine:
http://127.0.0.1/?level=sslfaxv3&id=f1mF...8%2FpUHJ%a

If I try to open it with application built with http.sys, I get the error:
Error decoding URL style (%XX) encoded string at position 43

The %a at the end of the URL should be %0a or %0A instead.  Characters encoded in %HH format must always have 2 hex digits. Indy is lenient about that at the end of a URL (not in the middle). Perhaps http.sys is not.

Is position 43 in the URL the %a at the end?  If not, what is at position 43 exactly?

Yes, the position 43 is %a
