This function frees a certificate context by decrementing its reference count. When the reference count goes to zero, the CertFreeCertificateContext function frees the memory occupied by a certificate context. Each context obtained by a get, find, enumerate, duplicate, or create operation must be freed by the appropriate free operation.
BOOL WINAPI CertFreeCertificateContext( PCCERT_CONTEXT pCertContext );
- [in] Pointer to the CERT_CONTEXT structure to be freed.
The function always returns TRUE.
