Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is the count of handles to GUI objects in use by the process. If no GUI objects are in use, the return value is zero.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

A process without a graphical user interface does not use GUI resources, therefore, GetGuiResources will return zero.
