GetCurrentPackageInfo function

Gets the package information for the calling process.

Syntax


LONG WINAPI GetCurrentPackageInfo(
  _In_       const UINT32 flags,
  _Inout_    UINT32 *bufferLength,
  _Out_opt_  BYTE *buffer,
  _Out_opt_  UINT32 *count
);

Parameters

flags [in]

Type: const UINT32

The package constants that specify how package information is retrieved. The PACKAGE_FILTER_* flags are supported.

bufferLength [in, out]

Type: UINT32*

On input, the size of buffer, in bytes. On output, the size of the array of structures returned, in bytes.

buffer [out, optional]

Type: BYTE*

The package information, represented as an array of PACKAGE_INFO structures.

count [out, optional]

Type: UINT32*

The number of structures in the buffer.

Return value

Type: LONG

If the function succeeds it returns ERROR_SUCCESS. Otherwise, the function returns an error code. The possible error codes include the following.

Return codeDescription
APPMODEL_ERROR_NO_PACKAGE

The process has no package identity.

ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER

The buffer is not large enough to hold the data. The required size is specified by bufferLength.
