A pointer to an integer to be filled with the current minor version number of the Windows operating system.

Returns zero if successful; an error code on failure. If pValue is NULL, the invalid parameter handler is invoked as described in Parameter Validation. If execution is allowed to continue, this function sets errno to EINVAL and returns EINVAL.
