Registers the application with the restart manager.

virtual HRESULT RegisterWithRestartManager(
   BOOL bRegisterRecoveryCallback,
   const CString &strRestartIdentifier

virtual HRESULT RegisterWithRestartManager(
   LPCWSTR pwzCommandLineArgs,
   DWORD dwRestartFlags,
   LPVOID lpvParam,
   DWORD dwPingInterval,
   DWORD dwCallbackFlags



[in] bRegisterRecoveryCallback

TRUE indicates that this instance of the application uses a recovery callback function; FALSE indicates that it does not. The framework calls the recovery callback function when the application exits unexpectedly. For more information, see CWinApp::ApplicationRecoveryCallback.

[in] strRestartIdentifier

The unique string that identifies this instance of the restart manager. The restart manager identifier is unique for each instance of an application.

[in] pwzCommandLineArgs

A string that contains any extra arguments from the command line.

[in] dwRestartFlags

Optional flags for the restart manager. For more information, see the Remarks section.

[in] pRecoveryCallback

The recovery callback function. This function must take a LPVOID parameter as input and return a DWORD. The default recovery callback function is CWinApp::ApplicationRecoveryCallback.

[in] lpvParam

The input parameter for the recovery callback function. For more information, see CWinApp::ApplicationRecoveryCallback.

[in] dwPingInterval

The length of time that the restart manager waits for the recovery callback function to return. This parameter is in milliseconds.

[in] dwCallbackFlags

Flags passed to the recovery callback function. Reserved for future use.

S_OK if the method is successful; otherwise an error code.

If your application uses the default MFC implementation for autosaving files, you should use the simple version of RegisterWithRestartManager. Use the complex version of RegisterWithRestartManager if you want to customize the autosave behavior of your application.

If you call this method with an empty string for strRestartIdentifier, RegisterWithRestartManager creates a unique identifier string for this instance of the restart manager.

When an application exits unexpectedly, the restart manager restarts the application from the command line and provides the unique restart identifier as an optional argument. In this scenario, the framework calls RegisterWithRestartManager two times. The first call comes from CWinApp::InitInstance with an empty string for the string identifier. Then, the method CWinApp::ProcessShellCommand calls RegisterWithRestartManager with the unique restart identifier.

After you register an application with the restart manager, the restart manager monitors the application. If the application exits unexpectedly, the restart manager calls the recovery callback function during the shut down process. The restart manager waits the dwPingInterval for a response from the recovery callback function. If the recovery callback function does not respond within this time, the application exits without executing the recovery callback function.

By default, the dwRestartFlags are not supported but are provided for future use. The possible values for dwRestartFlags are as follows:
