PathCchSkipRoot function

Retrieves a pointer to the first character in a path following the drive letter or Universal Naming Convention (UNC) server/share path elements.

This function differs from PathSkipRoot in that it accepts paths with "\\", "\\?\" and "\\?\UNC\" prefixes.

Syntax


HRESULT PathCchSkipRoot(
  _In_   PCWSTR pszPath,
  _Out_  PCWSTR *ppszRootEnd
);

Parameters

pszPath [in]

A pointer to the path string.

ppszRootEnd [out]

The address of a pointer that, when this function returns successfully, points to the first character in a path following the drive letter or UNC server/share path elements. If the path consists of only a root, this value will point to the string's terminating null character.

Return value

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