How to: Parse a Stream from a Binary Property to Read the TZDEFINITION Structure

This topic shows how to read the TZDEFINITION structure from the persisted format stored in a binary property.

TZDEFINITION* BinToTZDEFINITION(ULONG cbDef, LPBYTE lpbDef) 
{ 
    if (!lpbDef) return NULL; 
 
    // Update this if parsing code is changed. 
    // This checks the size up to the flag member. 
    if (cbDef < 2*sizeof(BYTE) + 2*sizeof(WORD)) return NULL; 
 
    TZDEFINITION tzDef = {0}; 
    TZRULE* lpRules = NULL; 
    LPBYTE lpPtr = lpbDef; 
    WORD cchKeyName = NULL; 
    WCHAR* szKeyName = NULL; 
    WORD i = 0; 
 
    BYTE bMajorVersion = *((BYTE*)lpPtr); 
    lpPtr += sizeof(BYTE); 
    BYTE bMinorVersion = *((BYTE*)lpPtr); 
    lpPtr += sizeof(BYTE); 
 
    // We only understand TZ_BIN_VERSION_MAJOR 
    if (TZ_BIN_VERSION_MAJOR != bMajorVersion) return NULL; 
 
    // We only understand if >= TZ_BIN_VERSION_MINOR 
    if (TZ_BIN_VERSION_MINOR > bMinorVersion) return NULL; 
 
    lpPtr += sizeof(WORD); 
 
    tzDef.wFlags = *((WORD*)lpPtr); 
    lpPtr += sizeof(WORD); 
 
    if (TZDEFINITION_FLAG_VALID_GUID & tzDef.wFlags) 
    { 
        if (lpbDef + cbDef - lpPtr < sizeof(GUID)) return NULL; 
        tzDef.guidTZID = *((GUID*)lpPtr); 
        lpPtr += sizeof(GUID); 
    } 
 
    if (TZDEFINITION_FLAG_VALID_KEYNAME & tzDef.wFlags) 
    { 
        if (lpbDef + cbDef - lpPtr < sizeof(WORD)) return NULL; 
        cchKeyName = *((WORD*)lpPtr); 
        lpPtr += sizeof(WORD); 
        if (cchKeyName) 
        { 
            if (lpbDef + cbDef - lpPtr < (BYTE)sizeof(WORD)*cchKeyName) return NULL; 
            szKeyName = (WCHAR*)lpPtr; 
            lpPtr += cchKeyName*sizeof(WORD); 
        }

    tzDef.cRules = *((WORD*)lpPtr); 
    lpPtr += sizeof(WORD); 
    if (tzDef.cRules) 
    { 
        lpRules = new TZRULE[tzDef.cRules]; 
        if (!lpRules) return NULL; 
 
        LPBYTE lpNextRule = lpPtr; 
        BOOL bRuleOK = false;
