ICInstall function

The ICInstall function installs a new compressor or decompressor.

Syntax


BOOL ICInstall(
  DWORD fccType,
  DWORD fccHandler,
  LPARAM lParam,
  LPSTR szDesc,
  UINT wFlags
);

Parameters

fccType

Four-character code indicating the type of data used by the compressor or decompressor. Specify "VIDC" for a video compressor or decompressor.

fccHandler

Four-character code identifying a specific compressor or decompressor.

lParam

Pointer to a null-terminated string containing the name of the compressor or decompressor, or the address of a function used for compression or decompression. The contents of this parameter are defined by the flags set for wFlags.

szDesc

Reserved; do not use.

wFlags

Flags defining the contents of lParam. The following values are defined.

Value Meaning
ICINSTALL_DRIVERThe lParam parameter contains the address of a null-terminated string that names the compressor to install.
ICINSTALL_FUNCTIONThe lParam parameter contains the address of a compressor function. This function should be structured like the DriverProc entry point function used by compressors.

 

Return value

Returns ICERR_OK if successful or an error otherwise.

Remarks

Applications must open an installed compressor or decompressor before using it.

If your application installs a function as a compressor or decompressor, it should remove the function with the ICRemove function before it terminates. This prevents other applications from trying to access the function when it is not available.
