Return value

If the method succeeds, it returns S_OK; otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code. For information about XPS document API return values, see XPS Document Errors.

This method calls the Packaging API. For information about the Packaging API return values, see Packaging Errors.


The IStream object returned by this method might return an error of E_PENDING, which indicates that the stream length has not been determined yet. This behavior is different from that of a standard IStream object.

This method calls the stream's Clone method to create the stream returned in stream. As a result, the performance of this method will depend on that of the stream's Clone method.
