The SetupGetFileCompressionInfoEx function examines a potentially compressed file and gets the type of compression, the file's full path (including file name), the compressed size, and the size of the uncompressed target file. The caller of the function passes in the name of the file to be examined and pointers to locations for the buffer and buffer size to receive the returned file name and path.
To determine the size of the buffer for the returned path and file name, you can call SetupGetFileCompressionInfoEx with ActualSourceFileNameBuffer specified Null and ActualSourceFileNameLen containing 0. The function succeeds and on return fills in RequiredBufferLen.
BOOL SetupGetFileCompressionInfoEx( __in PCTSTR SourceFileName, __inout PTSTR ActualSourceFileNameBuffer, __inout DWORD ActualSourceFileNameLen, __out PDWORD RequiredBufferLen, __out PDWORD SourceFileSize, __out PDWORD TargetFileSize, __out PUINT CompressionType );
- SourceFileName [in]
File name of the potentially compressed file to be examined. If the file is not found on the source media exactly as named, Setup searches for up to two alternate names. For example; if Setup does not find F:\x86\cmd.exe, it searches for F:\mpis\cmd.ex_ and if that name is not found, it searches for F:\x86\cmd.ex$.
- ActualSourceFileNameBuffer [in, out]
Pointer to a buffer that receives the actual file name and path if this parameter is not NULL. This is valid only if the function returns NO_ERROR.
- ActualSourceFileNameLen [in, out]
Size of the buffer specified by ActualSourceFileNameBuffer, in characters. You would typically use a buffer size of MAX_PATH. If ActualSourceFileNameLen is too small, the function fails with ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER. ActualSourceFileNameLen must contain zero if ActualSourceFileNameBuffer is NULL.
- RequiredBufferLen [out]
Size of the file name and full path including the terminating NULL, if this parameter is not NULL. If ActualSourceFileNameBuffer is NULL and ActualSourceFileNameLen is zero, the function succeeds but fills in RequiredBufferLen. This parameter is valid only if the function returns NO_ERROR or ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER.
- SourceFileSize [out]
Pointer to a variable in which this function returns the size of the file in its current form, which is the current size of the file named by ActualSourceFileNameBuffer. The size is determined by examining the source file; it is not retrieved from an INF file. The source file size is valid only if the function returns NO_ERROR or ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER.
- TargetFileSize [out]
Pointer to a variable in which this function returns the size that the file will occupy when it is uncompressed or copied. If the file is not compressed, this value will be the same as SourceFileSize. The size is determined by examining the file; it is not retrieved from an INF file. The target file size is valid only if the function returns NO_ERROR or ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER.
- CompressionType [out]
Pointer to a variable in which this function returns a value indicating the type of compression used on ActualSourceFileName. The compression type is valid only if the function returns NO_ERROR or ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER. This parameter value can be one of the following flags.
The source file is not compressed with a recognized compression algorithm.
The source file is compressed with LZ compression.
The source file is compressed with MSZIP compression.
If the function succeeds, the return value is TRUE (nonzero).
If the function fails, the return value is FALSE (zero). The function can also return one of the following system error codes.
The file cannot be found.
The file was located and the output parameters were filled in. Also returned if ActualSourceFileNameBuffer is Null.
The file was located and the output parameters set except for ActualSourceFileNameBuffer.
To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
Because SetupGetFileCompressionInfoEx determines the compression by examining the physical file, your setup application should ensure that the file is present before calling SetupGetFileCompressionInfoEx.
