CoGetMalloc function

Retrieves a pointer to the default OLE task memory allocator (which supports the system implementation of the IMalloc interface) so applications can call its methods to manage memory.

Syntax


HRESULT CoGetMalloc(
  _In_  DWORD    dwMemContext,
  _Out_ LPMALLOC *ppMalloc
);

Parameters

dwMemContext [in]

This parameter must be 1.

ppMalloc [out]

The address of an IMalloc* pointer variable that receives the interface pointer to the memory allocator.

Return value

This function can return the standard return values S_OK, E_INVALIDARG, and E_OUTOFMEMORY.

Remarks

The pointer to the IMalloc interface pointer received through the ppMalloc parameter cannot be used from a remote process; each process must have its own allocator.
