[This function is subject to change with each operating system revision. Instead, use the DirectDraw and Microsoft Direct3DAPIs; these APIs insulate applications from such operating system changes, and hide many other difficulties involved in interacting directly with display drivers.]
Destroys a previously created kernel-mode Microsoft DirectDraw device object.
Handle to the kernel-mode DirectDraw device object.
If successful, this function returns TRUE; otherwise it returns FALSE.
Applications are advised to use the DirectDraw and Direct3D APIs to create and manage graphics device objects. These constructs abstract the device creation process in a simplified and operating-system-independent way.
