CLSIDFromProgID function

  _In_   LPCOLESTR lpszProgID,
  _Out_  LPCLSID lpclsid
);

Parameters

lpszProgID [in]

A pointer to the ProgID whose CLSID is requested.

Receives a pointer to the retrieved CLSID on return.

Return value

Return codeDescription
S_OK

The CLSID was retrieved successfully.

CO_E_CLASSSTRING

The registered CLSID for the ProgID is invalid.

REGDB_E_WRITEREGDB

An error occurred writing the CLSID to the registry. See Remarks below.

 

Remarks

Given a ProgID, CLSIDFromProgID looks up its associated CLSID in the registry. If the ProgID cannot be found in the registry, CLSIDFromProgID creates an OLE 1 CLSID for the ProgID and a CLSID entry in the registry. Because of the restrictions placed on OLE 1 CLSID values, CLSIDFromProgID and CLSIDFromString are the only two functions that can be used to generate a CLSID for an OLE 1 object.
