Property Value Requirements

Property Value Requirements

Windows enforces the device property value size requirements that are listed in the following table. Windows only sets a device property value if the device property value complies with these value size requirements.

A fixed-length base-data-type value

The specified size of the supplied data must be the number of bytes in the base data type.

An array of a fixed-length base-data-type values

The specified size of the supplied data must be the number of bytes of an array of zero or more base-data-type values.

A DEVPROP_TYPE_SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR data type value

The specified size of the supplied data must be the number of bytes of a variable-length, self-relative SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR structure.

A DEVPROP_TYPE_STRING data type value, a DEVPROP_TYPE_SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR_STRING data type value, or a DEVPROP_TYPE_STRING_INDIRECT data type value

The specified size of the supplied data must be the number of bytes of a Unicode REG_SZ string, including the NULL-terminator.
