CMAPI CONFIGRET WINAPI CM_Free_Log_Conf_Ex( _In_ LOG_CONF lcLogConfToBeFreed, _In_ ULONG ulFlags, _In_opt_ HMACHINE hMachine );
- lcLogConfToBeFreed [in]
Caller-supplied handle to a logical configuration. This handle must have been previously obtained by calling one of the following functions:
- ulFlags [in]
Not used, must be zero.
- hMachine [in, optional]
Caller-supplied machine handle, obtained from a previous call to CM_Connect_Machine.
Note Using this function to access remote machines is not supported beginning with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, as this functionality has been removed.
If the operation succeeds, the function returns CR_SUCCESS. Otherwise, it returns one of the CR_-prefixed error codes defined in Cfgmgr32.h.
Note Starting with Windows 8, CM_Free_Log_Conf_Ex returns CR_CALL_NOT_IMPLEMENTED when used in a Wow64 scenario. To request information about the hardware resources on a local machine it is necessary implement an architecture-native version of the application using the hardware resource APIs. For example: An AMD64 application for AMD64 systems.
Calling CM_Free_Log_Conf_Ex can cause the handles returned by CM_Get_First_Log_Conf_Ex and CM_Get_Next_Log_Conf_Ex to become invalid. Thus if you want to obtain logical configurations after calling CM_Free_Log_Conf_Ex, your code must call CM_Get_First_Log_Conf_Ex again and start at the first configuration.
Note that calling CM_Free_Log_Conf_Ex frees the configuration, but not the configuration's handle. To free the handle, call CM_Free_Log_Conf_Handle_Ex.
Callers of this function must have SeLoadDriverPrivilege. (Privileges are described in the Microsoft Windows SDK documentation.)
Functionality to access remote machines has been removed in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 and later operating systems thus you cannot access remote machines when running on these versions of Windows.
|Available in Microsoft Windows 2000 and later versions of Windows.|
