CM_Locate_DevNode function

The CM_Locate_DevNode function obtains a device instance handle to the device node that is associated with a specified device instance ID on the local machine.

Syntax


CMAPI
CONFIGRET
WINAPI CM_Locate_DevNode(
  _Out_     PDEVINST pdnDevInst,
  _In_opt_  DEVINSTID_W pDeviceID,
  _In_      ULONG ulFlags
);

Parameters

pdnDevInst [out]

A pointer to a device instance handle that CM_Locate_DevNode retrieves. The retrieved handle is bound to the local machine.

pDeviceID [in, optional]

A pointer to a NULL-terminated string representing a device instance ID. If this value is NULL, or if it points to a zero-length string, the function retrieves a device instance handle to the device at the root of the device tree.

ulFlags [in]

A variable of ULONG type that supplies one of the following flag values that apply if the caller supplies a device instance identifier:

CM_LOCATE_DEVNODE_NORMAL

The function retrieves the device instance handle for the specified device only if the device is currently configured in the device tree.

CM_LOCATE_DEVNODE_PHANTOM

The function retrieves a device instance handle for the specified device if the device is currently configured in the device tree or the device is a nonpresent device that is not currently configured in the device tree.

CM_LOCATE_DEVNODE_CANCELREMOVE

The function retrieves a device instance handle for the specified device if the device is currently configured in the device tree or in the process of being removed from the device tree. If the device is in the process of being removed, the function cancels the removal of the device.

CM_LOCATE_DEVNODE_NOVALIDATION

Not used.

Return value

If the operation succeeds, CM_Locate_DevNode returns CR_SUCCESS. Otherwise, the function returns one of the CR_Xxx error codes that are defined in Cfgmgr32.h.
