IHostMemoryManager::CreateMAlloc Method

Gets an interface pointer to an IHostMAlloc instance that is used to make allocation requests from a heap created by the host.

HRESULT CreateMalloc (
    [in]  DWORD         dwMallocType,
    [out] IHostMalloc **ppMalloc
);

dwMallocType

[in] A combination of MALLOC_TYPE flags that specifies the characteristics of the memory that is being allocated.

ppMAlloc

[out] A pointer to the address of an IHostMAlloc instance provided by the host.

HRESULT

Description

S_OK

CreateMAlloc returned successfully.

HOST_E_CLRNOTAVAILABLE

The common language runtime (CLR) has not been loaded into a process, or the CLR is in a state in which it cannot run managed code or process the call successfully.

HOST_E_TIMEOUT

The call timed out.

HOST_E_NOT_OWNER

The caller does not own the lock.

HOST_E_ABANDONED

An event was canceled while a blocked thread or fiber was waiting on it.

E_FAIL

An unknown catastrophic failure occurred. When a method returns E_FAIL, the CLR is no longer usable within the process. Subsequent calls to hosting methods return HOST_E_CLRNOTAVAILABLE.

E_OUTOFMEMORY

Not enough physical memory was available to complete the allocation request.

CreateMAlloc returns an object that allows the CLR to make allocation requests through the host instead of using the standard Win32 functions.
