);

The address of the IFileOperation interface pointer.

Return value

Type: HRESULT

If this function succeeds, it returns S_OK. Otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code.

Remarks

The list of properties to set a default value comes from the SetDefaultsFor registry entry under the ProgID for the file association of the item. The list is prefixed by prop: and contains the canonical names of the properties to set the default value, for example, prop:System.Author;System.Document.DateCreated. The possible properties for this list are System.Author, System.Document.DateCreated, and System.Photo.DateTaken. If the SetDefaultsFor entry does not exist on the ProgID, this function uses the default found on the SetDefaultsFor entry of HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*.
