Active Directory Service Interface (ADSI) Windows NT Provider

The Active Directory Service Interface (ADSI) Windows NT Provider component is supplied by ADSI to communicate with Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 primary domain controllers and backup domain controllers. Administrators and developers can enumerate and manage the resources in a directory service by using Component Object Model (COM) interfaces exported by ADSI. These interfaces are compliant with Automation for name-bound controllers, such as Microsoft Visual Basic, and Microsoft Visual Basic, Scripting Edition (VBScript). ADSI can also provide an interface that can optimize performance for interfaces that are not compliant with Automation to use with language environments, such as C and C++.

This component cannot be assumed to be completely thread-safe. Developers of multithreaded applications should be careful to properly coordinate access between threads by using synchronization objects, such as semaphores, mutexes, and critical sections.
