CM_Free_Res_Des function

The CM_Free_Res_Des function removes a resource descriptor from a logical configuration on the local machine.

Syntax


CMAPI
CONFIGRET
WINAPI CM_Free_Res_Des(
  _Out_  PRES_DES prdResDes,
  _In_   RES_DES  rdResDes,
  _In_   ULONG    ulFlags
);

Parameters

prdResDes [out]

Caller-supplied location to receive a handle to the configuration's previous resource descriptor. This parameter can be NULL. For more information, see the following Remarks section.

rdResDes [in]

Caller-supplied handle to the resource descriptor to be removed. This handle must have been previously obtained by calling one of the following functions:

CM_Add_Res_Des

CM_Add_Res_Des_Ex

CM_Get_Next_Res_Des

CM_Get_Next_Res_Des_Ex

CM_Modify_Res_Des

CM_Modify_Res_Des_Ex

ulFlags [in]

Not used, must be zero.

Return value

If the operation succeeds, the function returns CR_SUCCESS. Otherwise, it returns one of the CR_-prefixed error codes defined in Cfgmgr32.h.

Note  Starting with Windows 8, CM_Free_Res_Des returns CR_CALL_NOT_IMPLEMENTED when used in a Wow64 scenario. To request information about the hardware resources on a local machine it is necessary implement an architecture-native version of the application using the hardware resource APIs. For example: An AMD64 application for AMD64 systems.

Remarks

Resource descriptors for each configuration are stored in an array. If you specify an address for prdResDes, then CM_Free_Res_Des returns a handle to the resource descriptor that was previous, in the array, to the one removed. If the handle specified by rdResDes represents the resource descriptor located first in the array, then prdResDes receives a handle to the logical configuration.

Note that calling CM_Free_Res_Des frees the resource descriptor, but not the descriptor's handle. To free the handle, call CM_Free_Res_Des_Handle.

Callers of this function must have SeLoadDriverPrivilege. (Privileges are described in the Microsoft Windows SDK documentation.)
