SetupAddToSourceList function

[This function is available for use in the operating systems indicated in the Requirements section. It may be altered or unavailable in subsequent versions. SetupAPI should no longer be used for installing applications. Instead, use the Windows Installer for developing application installers. SetupAPI continues to be used for installing device drivers.]

The SetupAddToSourceList function appends a value to the list of installation sources for either the current user or the system. If the value already exists, it is removed first, so that duplicate entries are not created.

A caller of this function is required have administrative privileges, otherwise the function fails.
