Converts a CLSID into a string of printable characters. Different CLSIDs always convert to different strings.

  _Out_  LPOLESTR *lplpsz
);

Parameters

rclsid [in]

The CLSID to be converted.

lplpsz [out]

The address of a pointer variable that receives a pointer to the resulting string. The string that represents rclsid includes enclosing braces.

Return value

This function can return the standard return values E_OUTOFMEMORY and S_OK.
