IMSAdminBase::AddKey

IIS 6.0

The IMSAdminBase::AddKey method creates a key and adds it to the metabase as a subkey of an existing key at the specified path.


HRESULT AddKey(
      METADATA_HANDLE hMDHandle,
      LPCWSTR pszMDPath
);

hMDHandle

Specifies a handle with write permissions as returned by the IMSAdminBase::OpenKey method. The value METADATA_MASTER_ROOT_HANDLE is not valid for this operation.

pszMDPath

Points to a string that contains the new key's path, relative to the path of hMDHandle. For example, if the handle references the /LM key, you could specify the Web services subkey using the path /LM/W3SVC.

This parameter cannot be null.

Returns an HRESULT that contains one of the following values:
