SHLoadLibraryFromParsingName function

Creates and loads an IShellLibrary object for a specified path.

Syntax


HRESULT SHLoadLibraryFromParsingName(
  _In_   PCWSTR pszParsingName,
  _In_   DWORD grfMode,
  _In_   REFIID riid,
  _Out_  void **ppv
);

Parameters

pszParsingName [in]

Type: PCWSTR

The path for which to load the IShellLibrary object.

grfMode [in]

Type: DWORD

One or more storage medium flags that specify access and sharing modes for the library object. Commonly specified flags are STGM_READ or STGM_READWRITE. For more information, see STGM.

riid [in]

Type: REFIID

A reference to the IID of the interface to retrieve through ppv, typically IID_IShellLibrary.

ppv [out]

Type: void**

When this method returns successfully, contains the interface pointer requested in riid. This is typically IShellLibrary.

Return value

Type: HRESULT

If this function succeeds, it returns S_OK. Otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code.

Remarks

We recommend that you use the IID_PPV_ARGS macro, defined in Objbase.h, to package the riid and ppv parameters. This macro provides the correct IID based on the interface pointed to by the value in ppv, which eliminates the possibility of a coding error in riid that could lead to unexpected results.

This is an inline helper function that wraps the IShellLibrary::LoadLibraryFromItem method.
