REG_OPEN_KEY_INFORMATION structure

The REG_OPEN_KEY_INFORMATION structure contains the name of a registry key that is about to be opened.

Note  Starting with Windows 7, the V1 version of this structure, REG_OPEN_KEY_INFORMATION_V1, is used instead.

Syntax


typedef struct _REG_CREATE_KEY_INFORMATION {
  PUNICODE_STRING CompleteName;
  PVOID           RootObject;
  PVOID           ObjectType;
  ULONG           CreateOptions;
  PUNICODE_STRING Class;
  PVOID           SecurityDescriptor;
  PVOID           SecurityQualityOfService;
  ACCESS_MASK     DesiredAccess;
  ACCESS_MASK     GrantedAccess;
  PULONG          Disposition;
  PVOID           *ResultObject;
  PVOID           CallContext;
  PVOID           RootObjectContext;
  PVOID           Transaction;
  PVOID           Reserved;
} REG_CREATE_KEY_INFORMATION, REG_OPEN_KEY_INFORMATION, *PREG_CREATE_KEY_INFORMATION, *PREG_OPEN_KEY_INFORMATION;

Members

CompleteName

A pointer to a UNICODE_STRING structure that contains the path of the new registry key. The path can be absolute or relative. If the path is absolute, this structure contains a fully qualified path that starts with the "\" character. For an absolute path, the RootObject member specifies the \REGISTRY key, which is the root directory of the registry tree. If the path is relative, the path starts with a character other than "\", and is relative to the key that is specified by the RootObject member.

RootObject

A pointer to the registry key object that serves as the root for the path that the CompleteName member specifies.

ObjectType

The ObjectType member is for internal use. Drivers must not access this member. This member is defined starting with Windows Vista.

CreateOptions

The CreateOptions member is not used. This member is defined starting with Windows Vista.

Class

The Class member is not used. This member is defined starting with Windows Vista.

SecurityDescriptor

The SecurityDescriptor member is not used. This member is defined starting with Windows Vista.

SecurityQualityOfService

The SecurityQualityOfService member is not used. This member is defined starting with Windows Vista.

DesiredAccess

The access mask that was specified by the thread that is attempting to open the registry key. This member is defined starting with Windows Vista.

GrantedAccess

An access mask that indicates the access rights that have been granted to the thread that is attempting to open the registry key. For more information about this member, see Remarks. This member is defined starting with Windows Vista.

Disposition

The Disposition member is not used. This member is defined starting with Windows Vista.

ResultObject

A pointer to a location that receives the address of the key object that represents the opened registry key. For more information about this member, see Remarks. This member is defined starting with Windows Vista.

CallContext

A pointer to driver-defined context information that the driver has associated with a registry object by calling CmSetCallbackObjectContext. This member is defined starting with Windows Vista.

RootObjectContext

A pointer to a driver-defined context information that the driver has associated with the root of the path for the registry object by calling CmSetCallbackObjectContext. This member is defined starting with Windows Vista.

Transaction

A pointer to a transaction object that the operation is attempted on. If this member is NULL, the operation is being performed in non-transactional context. This member is defined starting with Windows Vista.

Reserved

Starting with Windows Vista, if this member is 1, then it is safe to cast this structure to type REG_OPEN_KEY_INFORMATION_V1, which contains additional parameters.

In versions of Windows before Windows Vista, this member is always 0.

Remarks

The system passes this structure to the RegistryCallback routine every time a thread attempts to open a key—for example, when a user-mode thread calls the RegOpenKey or RegOpenKeyEx function, or when or a driver calls the ZwOpenKey routine.

If the driver's RegistryCallback routine returns STATUS_CALLBACK_BYPASS for a RegNtPreOpenKeyEx notification, the driver must supply the GrantedAccess and ResultObject values.

For more information about registry filtering operations, see Filtering Registry Calls.

Requirements

Version

Available starting with Windows Server 2003, but some structure members are available only in Windows Vista and later versions.
