[This function is subject to change with each operating system revision. Instead, use the Microsoft DirectDraw and Microsoft Direct3DAPIs; these APIs insulate applications from such operating system changes, and hide many other difficulties involved in interacting directly with display drivers. ]
GdiEntry8 is defined as an alias for this function.
Pointer to the DirectDraw surface for which a DC was obtained.
If successful, this function returns TRUE; otherwise it returns FALSE.
