CM_Get_Sibling_Ex function

The CM_Get_Sibling_Ex function obtains a device instance handle to the next sibling node of a specified device node, in a local or a remote machine's device tree.

Syntax


CMAPI
CONFIGRET
WINAPI CM_Get_Sibling_Ex(
  _Out_    PDEVINST pdnDevInst,
  _In_     DEVINST  DevInst,
  _In_     ULONG    ulFlags,
  _In_opt_ HMACHINE hMachine
);

Parameters

pdnDevInst [out]

Caller-supplied pointer to the device instance handle to the sibling node that this function retrieves. The retrieved handle is bound to the machine handle specified by hMachine.

DevInst [in]

Caller-supplied device instance handle that is bound to the machine handle specified by hMachine.

ulFlags [in]

Not used, must be zero.

hMachine [in, optional]

Caller-supplied machine handle to which the caller-supplied device instance handle is bound.

Note  Using this function to access remote machines is not supported beginning with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, as this functionality has been removed.

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.

Remarks

To enumerate all children of a device node in the local machine's device tree, first call CM_Get_Child_Ex to obtain a handle to the first child node, then call CM_Get_Sibling_Ex to obtain handles for the rest of the children.

For information about using device instance handles that are bound to a local or a remote machine, see CM_Get_Child_Ex.

Functionality to access remote machines has been removed in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 and later operating systems thus you cannot access remote machines when running on these versions of Windows.
