IVssExamineWriterMetadataEx2 interface

Defines methods to retrieve version information and other basic information for a specific writer instance.

Your writer application should implement this interface only if you need to use the GetExcludeFromSnapshotCount, GetExcludeFromSnapshotFile, and GetVersion methods. Otherwise, your writer application should implement the IVssExamineWriterMetadataEx interface or the IVssExamineWriterMetadata interface instead.

The IVssExamineWriterMetadataEx2 interface is a C++ (not COM) interface.

To obtain an instance of the IVssExamineWriterMetadataEx2 interface, call the QueryInterface method of the IVssExamineWriterMetadata interface, and pass the IID_IVssExamineWriterMetadataEx2 constant as the interface identifier (IID) parameter.
