Notifies the system that there are new time samples available.
This function has no parameters.
If the function succeeds, the return value is S_OK. Otherwise, the return value is one of the error codes defined in WinError.h.
The time provider manager uses this notification to determine when to send a TPC_GetSamples command. A hardware provider does not need to call this function, as the time provider manager requests samples without this notification. Time providers that provide samples sporadically, such as a provider that works in the background when a user establishes a transient dial-up connection, must call this function.
The TimeProvOpen function returns a pointer to this function.
