GetPackageId function

Gets the package identifier (ID) for the specified process.

Syntax


LONG WINAPI GetPackageId(
  _In_       HANDLE hProcess,
  _Inout_    UINT32 *bufferLength,
  _Out_opt_  BYTE *pBuffer
);

Parameters

hProcess [in]

Type: HANDLE

A handle to the process that has the PROCESS_QUERY_INFORMATION or PROCESS_QUERY_LIMITED_INFORMATION access right. For more information, see Process Security and Access Rights.

bufferLength [in, out]

Type: UINT32*

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

pBuffer [out, optional]

Type: BYTE*

The package ID, represented as a PACKAGE_ID structure.

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.
