    • Field Detail

      • INSTANCE

        static final Kernel32 INSTANCE
        The instance.
      • LOAD_LIBRARY_AS_DATAFILE

        static final int LOAD_LIBRARY_AS_DATAFILE
        LOAD_LIBRARY_AS_DATAFILE
        0x00000002
        If this value is used, the system maps the file into the calling process's virtual address space as if it were a data file.
        Nothing is done to execute or prepare to execute the mapped file.
        Therefore, you cannot call functions like GetModuleFileName , GetModuleHandle or GetProcAddress with this DLL. Using this value causes writes to read-only memory to raise an access violation.
        Use this flag when you want to load a DLL only to extract messages or resources from it.
        This value can be used with LOAD_LIBRARY_AS_IMAGE_RESOURCE. For more information, see Remarks.

                         WinBase.OVERLAPPED lpOverlapped)
        Reads data from the specified file or input/output (I/O) device. Reads occur at the position specified by the file pointer if supported by the device. This function is designed for both synchronous and asynchronous operations. For a similar function designed solely for asynchronous operation, see ReadFileEx
        Parameters:
        hFile - A handle to the device (for example, a file, file stream, physical disk, volume, console buffer, tape drive, socket, communications resource, mailslot, or pipe).
        lpBuffer - A pointer to the buffer that receives the data read from a file or device.
        nNumberOfBytesToRead - The maximum number of bytes to be read.
        lpNumberOfBytesRead - A pointer to the variable that receives the number of bytes read when using a synchronous hFile parameter
        lpOverlapped - A pointer to an OVERLAPPED structure is required if the hFile parameter was opened with FILE_FLAG_OVERLAPPED, otherwise it can be NULL.
        Returns:
        If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero (TRUE). If the function fails, or is completing asynchronously, the return value is zero (FALSE). To get extended error information, call the GetLastError function. Note The GetLastError code ERROR_IO_PENDING is not a failure; it designates the read operation is pending completion asynchronously. For more information, see Remarks.

                          Pointer va_list)
        The FormatMessage function formats a message string. The function requires a message definition as input. The message definition can come from a buffer passed into the function. It can come from a message table resource in an already-loaded module. Or the caller can ask the function to search the system's message table resource(s) for the message definition. The function finds the message definition in a message table resource based on a message identifier and a language identifier. The function copies the formatted message text to an output buffer, processing any embedded insert sequences if requested.
        Parameters:
        dwFlags - Formatting options, and how to interpret the lpSource parameter. The low-order byte of dwFlags specifies how the function handles line breaks in the output buffer. The low-order byte can also specify the maximum width of a formatted output line.

        This version of the function assumes FORMAT_MESSAGE_ALLOCATE_BUFFER is set.

        lpSource - Location of the message definition.
        dwMessageId - Message identifier for the requested message.
        dwLanguageId - Language identifier for the requested message.
        lpBuffer - Pointer to a pointer that receives the allocated buffer in which the null-terminated string that specifies the formatted message is written.
        nSize - This parameter specifies the minimum number of TCHARs to allocate for an output buffer.
        va_list - Pointer to an array of values that are used as insert values in the formatted message.
        Returns:
        If the function succeeds, the return value is the number of TCHARs stored in the output buffer, excluding the terminating null character. If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

        dwCreationDisposition - An action to take on files that exist and do not exist.
        dwFlagsAndAttributes - The file attributes and flags.
        hTemplateFile - Handle to a template file with the GENERIC_READ access right. The template file supplies file attributes and extended attributes for the file that is being created. This parameter can be NULL.
        Returns:
        If the function succeeds, the return value is an open handle to a specified file. If a specified file exists before the function call and dwCreationDisposition is CREATE_ALWAYS or OPEN_ALWAYS, a call to GetLastError returns ERROR_ALREADY_EXISTS, even when the function succeeds. If a file does not exist before the call, GetLastError returns 0 (zero). If the function fails, the return value is INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

        Moves an existing file or directory, including its children, with various move options.
        Parameters:
        lpExistingFileName - The current name of the file or directory on the local computer. If dwFlags specifies MOVEFILE_DELAY_UNTIL_REBOOT, the file cannot exist on a remote share, because delayed operations are performed before the network is available. The name is limited to MAX_PATH characters. To extend this limit to 32,767 wide characters, prepend "\\?\" to the path. For more information, see Naming a File Windows 2000: If you prepend the file name with "\\?\", you cannot also specify the MOVEFILE_DELAY_UNTIL_REBOOT flag for dwFlags.
        lpNewFileName - The new name of the file or directory on the local computer. When moving a file, the destination can be on a different file system or volume. If the destination is on another drive, you must set the MOVEFILE_COPY_ALLOWED flag in dwFlags. When moving a directory, the destination must be on the same drive. If dwFlags specifies MOVEFILE_DELAY_UNTIL_REBOOT and lpNewFileName is NULL, MoveFileEx registers the lpExistingFileName file to be deleted when the system restarts. If lpExistingFileName refers to a directory, the system removes the directory at restart only if the directory is empty.
        dwFlags - This parameter can be one or more of the following values.

        int WaitForSingleObject(WinNT.HANDLE hHandle,
                                int dwMilliseconds)
        Waits until the specified object is in the signaled state or the time-out interval elapses. To enter an alertable wait state, use the WaitForSingleObjectEx function. To wait for multiple objects, use the WaitForMultipleObjects.
        Parameters:
        hHandle - A handle to the object. For a list of the object types whose handles can be specified, see the following Remarks section. If this handle is closed while the wait is still pending, the function's behavior is undefined. The handle must have the SYNCHRONIZE access right. For more information, see Standard Access Rights.
        dwMilliseconds - The time-out interval, in milliseconds. If a nonzero value is specified, the function waits until the object is signaled or the interval elapses. If dwMilliseconds is zero, the function does not enter a wait state if the object is not signaled; it always returns immediately. If dwMilliseconds is INFINITE, the function will return only when the object is signaled.
        Returns:
        If the function succeeds, the return value indicates the event that caused the function to return.
      • WaitForMultipleObjects

        int WaitForMultipleObjects(int nCount,

                                   int dwMilliseconds)
        Waits until one or all of the specified objects are in the signaled state or the time-out interval elapses. To enter an alertable wait state, use the WaitForMultipleObjectsEx function.
        Parameters:
        nCount - The number of object handles in the array pointed to by lpHandles. The maximum number of object handles is MAXIMUM_WAIT_OBJECTS.
        hHandle - An array of object handles. For a list of the object types whose handles can be specified, see the following Remarks section. The array can contain handles to objects of different types. It may not contain multiple copies of the same handle. If one of these handles is closed while the wait is still pending, the function's behavior is undefined. The handles must have the SYNCHRONIZE access right. For more information, see Standard Access Rights.
        bWaitAll - If this parameter is TRUE, the function returns when the state of all objects in the lpHandles array is signaled. If FALSE, the function returns when the state of any one of the objects is set to signaled. In the latter case, the return value indicates the object whose state caused the function to return.
        dwMilliseconds - The time-out interval, in milliseconds. If a nonzero value is specified, the function waits until the specified objects are signaled or the interval elapses. If dwMilliseconds is zero, the function does not enter a wait state if the specified objects are not signaled; it always returns immediately. If dwMilliseconds is INFINITE, the function will return only when the specified objects are signaled.
        Returns:
        If the function succeeds, the return value indicates the event that caused the function to return.

        Retrieves information that describes the changes within the specified directory. The function does not report changes to the specified directory itself. Note: there's no ReadDirectoryChangesA.
        Parameters:
        directory - A handle to the directory to be monitored. This directory must be opened with the FILE_LIST_DIRECTORY access right.
        info - A pointer to the DWORD-aligned formatted buffer in which the read results are to be returned.
        length - The size of the buffer that is pointed to by the lpBuffer parameter, in bytes.
        watchSubtree - If this parameter is TRUE, the function monitors the directory tree rooted at the specified directory. If this parameter is FALSE, the function monitors only the directory specified by the hDirectory parameter.
        notifyFilter - The filter criteria that the function checks to determine if the wait operation has completed.
        bytesReturned - For synchronous calls, this parameter receives the number of bytes transferred into the lpBuffer parameter. For asynchronous calls, this parameter is undefined. You must use an asynchronous notification technique to retrieve the number of bytes transferred.
        overlapped - A pointer to an OVERLAPPED structure that supplies data to be used during asynchronous operation. Otherwise, this value is NULL. The Offset and OffsetHigh members of this structure are not used.
        completionRoutine - A pointer to a completion routine to be called when the operation has been completed or canceled and the calling thread is in an alertable wait state.
        Returns:
        If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero. For synchronous calls, this means that the operation succeeded. For asynchronous calls, this indicates that the operation was successfully queued. If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError. If the network redirector or the target file system does not support this operation, the function fails with ERROR_INVALID_FUNCTION.

                                  IntByReference lpnSize)
        Retrieves a NetBIOS or DNS name associated with the local computer, according to the nameType enumeration value
        Parameters:
        nameType - An enumeration value specifying the type of name to be retrieved - this parameter is a value from the COMPUTER_NAME_FORMAT in the WinBase definitions
        buffer - A pointer to a buffer that receives the computer name or the cluster virtual server name. The length of the name may be greater than MAX_COMPUTERNAME_LENGTH characters because DNS allows longer names. To ensure that this buffer is large enough, set this parameter to NULL and use the required buffer size returned in the lpnSize parameter.
        lpnSize - On input, specifies the size of the buffer, in TCHARs. On output, the number of TCHARs copied to the destination buffer, not including the terminating null character. If the buffer is too small, the function fails and GetLastError returns ERROR_BUFFER_OVERFLOW. The lpnSize parameter specifies the size of the buffer required, including the terminating null character.
        Returns:
        If the function succeeds, the return value is a nonzero value. If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

      • CreateProcessW

        boolean CreateProcessW(java.lang.String lpApplicationName,
                               char[] lpCommandLine,
                               WinBase.SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES lpProcessAttributes,
                               WinBase.SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES lpThreadAttributes,
                               boolean bInheritHandles,
                               WinDef.DWORD dwCreationFlags,
                               Pointer lpEnvironment,
                               java.lang.String lpCurrentDirectory,
                               WinBase.STARTUPINFO lpStartupInfo,
                               WinBase.PROCESS_INFORMATION lpProcessInformation)
        Creates a new process and its primary thread. The new process runs in the security context of the calling process.
        Parameters:
        lpApplicationName - The name of the module to be executed.
        lpCommandLine - The command line to be executed. The maximum length of this string is 32,768 characters, including the Unicode terminating null character. If lpApplicationName is NULL, the module name portion of lpCommandLine is limited to MAX_PATH characters.

        The Unicode version of this function, CreateProcessW(java.lang.String, char[], com.sun.jna.platform.win32.WinBase.SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES, com.sun.jna.platform.win32.WinBase.SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES, boolean, com.sun.jna.platform.win32.WinDef.DWORD, com.sun.jna.Pointer, java.lang.String, com.sun.jna.platform.win32.WinBase.STARTUPINFO, com.sun.jna.platform.win32.WinBase.PROCESS_INFORMATION), can modify the contents of this string. Therefore, this parameter cannot be a pointer to read-only memory (such as a const variable or a literal string). If this parameter is a constant string, the function may cause an access violation.

        The lpCommandLine parameter can be NULL. In that case, the function uses the string pointed to by lpApplicationName as the command line.

        If both lpApplicationName and lpCommandLine are non-NULL, the null-terminated string pointed to by lpApplicationName specifies the module to execute, and the null-terminated string pointed to by lpCommandLine specifies the command line. The new process can use GetCommandLine to retrieve the entire command line. Console processes written in C can use the argc and argv arguments to parse the command line. Because argv[0] is the module name, C programmers generally repeat the module name as the first token in the command line.

        If lpApplicationName is NULL, the first white space-delimited token of the command line specifies the module name. If you are using a long file name that contains a space, use quoted strings to indicate where the file name ends and the arguments begin (see the explanation for the lpApplicationName parameter). If the file name does not contain an extension, .exe is appended. Therefore, if the file name extension is .com, this parameter must include the .com extension. If the file name ends in a period (.) with no extension, or if the file name contains a path, .exe is not appended. If the file name does not contain a directory path, the system searches for the executable file in the following sequence:
        • The directory from which the application loaded.
        • The current directory for the parent process.
        • The 32-bit Windows system directory. Use the GetSystemDirectory function to get the path of this directory.
        • The 16-bit Windows system directory. There is no function that obtains the path of this directory, but it is searched. The name of this directory is System.
        • The Windows directory. Use the GetWindowsDirectory function to get the path of this directory.
        • The directories that are listed in the PATH environment variable. Note that this function does not search the per-application path specified by the App Paths registry key. To include this per-application path in the search sequence, use the ShellExecute function.
        The system adds a terminating null character to the command-line string to separate the file name from the arguments. This divides the original string into two strings for internal processing.
        lpProcessAttributes - A pointer to a SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES structure that determines whether the returned handle to the new process object can be inherited by child processes. If lpProcessAttributes is NULL, the handle cannot be inherited.
        lpThreadAttributes - A pointer to a SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES structure that determines whether the returned handle to the new thread object can be inherited by child processes. If lpThreadAttributes is NULL, the handle cannot be inherited.
        bInheritHandles - If this parameter TRUE, each inheritable handle in the calling process is inherited by the new process. If the parameter is FALSE, the handles are not inherited. Note that inherited handles have the same value and access rights as the original handles.
        dwCreationFlags - The flags that control the priority class and the creation of the process.
        lpEnvironment - A pointer to the environment block for the new process. If this parameter is NULL, the new process uses the environment of the calling process.
        lpCurrentDirectory - The full path to the current directory for the process.
        lpStartupInfo - A pointer to a STARTUPINFO or STARTUPINFOEX structure.
        lpProcessInformation - A pointer to a PROCESS_INFORMATION structure that receives identification information about the new process.
        Returns:
        If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

        lpBuffer - Pointer to a buffer that receives a series of null-terminated strings, one for each valid drive in the system, plus with an additional null character. Each string is a device name.
        Returns:
        If the function succeeds, the return value is the length, in characters, of the strings copied to the buffer, not including the terminating null character. Note that an ANSI-ASCII null character uses one byte, but a Unicode null character uses two bytes. If the buffer is not large enough, the return value is greater than nBufferLength. It is the size of the buffer required to hold the drive strings. If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, use the GetLastError function.

        hDevice - A handle to the device on which the operation is to be performed. The device is typically a volume, directory, file, or stream. To retrieve a device handle, use the CreateFile function. For more information, see Remarks.
        dwIoControlCode - The control code for the operation. This value identifies the specific operation to be performed and the type of device on which to perform it. For a list of the control codes, see Remarks. The documentation for each control code provides usage details for the lpInBuffer, nInBufferSize, lpOutBuffer, and nOutBufferSize parameters.
        lpInBuffer - A pointer to the input buffer that contains the data required to perform the operation. The format of this data depends on the value of the dwIoControlCode parameter. This parameter can be NULL if dwIoControlCode specifies an operation that does not require input data.
        nInBufferSize - The size of the input buffer, in bytes.
        lpOutBuffer - A pointer to the output buffer that is to receive the data returned by the operation. The format of this data depends on the value of the dwIoControlCode parameter. This parameter can be NULL if dwIoControlCode specifies an operation that does not return data.
        nOutBufferSize - The size of the output buffer, in bytes.
        lpBytesReturned - A pointer to a variable that receives the size of the data stored in the output buffer, in bytes. If the output buffer is too small to receive any data, the call fails, GetLastError returns ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER, and lpBytesReturned is zero. If the output buffer is too small to hold all of the data but can hold some entries, some drivers will return as much data as fits. In this case, the call fails, GetLastError returns ERROR_MORE_DATA, and lpBytesReturned indicates the amount of data received. Your application should call DeviceIoControl again with the same operation, specifying a new starting point. If lpOverlapped is NULL, lpBytesReturned cannot be NULL. Even when an operation returns no output data and lpOutBuffer is NULL, DeviceIoControl makes use of lpBytesReturned. After such an operation, the value of lpBytesReturned is meaningless. If lpOverlapped is not NULL, lpBytesReturned can be NULL. If this parameter is not NULL and the operation returns data, lpBytesReturned is meaningless until the overlapped operation has completed. To retrieve the number of bytes returned, call GetOverlappedResult. If hDevice is associated with an I/O completion port, you can retrieve the number of bytes returned by calling GetQueuedCompletionStatus.
        lpOverlapped - A pointer to an OVERLAPPED structure. If hDevice was opened without specifying FILE_FLAG_OVERLAPPED, lpOverlapped is ignored. If hDevice was opened with the FILE_FLAG_OVERLAPPED flag, the operation is performed as an overlapped (asynchronous) operation. In this case, lpOverlapped must point to a valid OVERLAPPED structure that contains a handle to an event object. Otherwise, the function fails in unpredictable ways. For overlapped operations, DeviceIoControl returns immediately, and the event object is signaled when the operation has been completed. Otherwise, the function does not return until the operation has been completed or an error occurs.
        Returns:
        If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero. If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

        Retrieves a string from the specified section in an initialization file.
        Parameters:
        lpAppName - The name of the section containing the key name. If this parameter is null, the GetPrivateProfileString(java.lang.String, java.lang.String, java.lang.String, char[], com.sun.jna.platform.win32.WinDef.DWORD, java.lang.String) function copies all section names in the file to the supplied buffer.
        lpKeyName - The name of the key whose associated string is to be retrieved. If this parameter is null, all key names in the section specified by the lpAppName parameter are copied to the buffer specified by the lpReturnedString parameter.
        lpDefault - A default string. If the lpKeyName key cannot be found in the initialization file, GetPrivateProfileString(java.lang.String, java.lang.String, java.lang.String, char[], com.sun.jna.platform.win32.WinDef.DWORD, java.lang.String) copies the default string to the lpReturnedString buffer. If this parameter is null, the default is an empty string, "".

        Avoid specifying a default string with trailing blank characters. The function inserts a null character in the lpReturnedString buffer to strip any trailing blanks.

        lpReturnedString - A pointer to the buffer that receives the retrieved string.
        nSize - The size of the buffer pointed to by the lpReturnedString parameter, in characters.
        lpFileName - The name of the initialization file. If this parameter does not contain a full path to the file, the system searches for the file in the Windows directory.
        Returns:
        The return value is the number of characters copied to the buffer, not including the terminating null character.

        If neither lpAppName nor lpKeyName is null and the supplied destination buffer is too small to hold the requested string, the string is truncated and followed by a null character, and the return value is equal to nSize minus one.

        If either lpAppName or lpKeyName is null and the supplied destination buffer is too small to hold all the strings, the last string is truncated and followed by two null characters. In this case, the return value is equal to nSize minus two.

        In the event the initialization file specified by lpFileName is not found, or contains invalid values, this function will set errorno with a value of '0x2' (File Not Found). To retrieve extended error information, call GetLastError().

        Copies a string into the specified section of an initialization file. If the file was created using Unicode characters, the function writes Unicode characters to the file. Otherwise, the function writes ANSI characters.
        Parameters:
        lpAppName - The name of the section to which the string will be copied. If the section does not exist, it is created. The name of the section is case-independent; the string can be any combination of uppercase and lowercase letters.
        lpKeyName - The name of the key to be associated with a string. If the key does not exist in the specified section, it is created. If this parameter is null, the entire section, including all entries within the section, is deleted.
        lpString - A string to be written to the file. If this parameter is null, the key pointed to by the lpKeyName parameter is deleted.
        lpFileName - The name of the initialization file.
        Returns:
        If the function successfully copies the string to the initialization file, the return value is true.

        If the function fails, or if it flushes the cached version of the most recently accessed initialization file, the return value is false. To get extended error information, call GetLastError().

        lpStartAddress - The application-defined WinBase.FOREIGN_THREAD_START_ROUTINE to be executed by the thread and represents the starting address of the thread in the remote process. The function must exist in the remote process.
        lpParameter - A pointer to a variable to be passed to the thread function.
        dwCreationFlags - The flags that control the creation of the thread.
        lpThreadId - A variable that receives the thread identifier. If this parameter is null, the thread identifier is not returned.
        Returns:
        If the function succeeds, the return value is a handle to the new thread. If the function fails, the return value is null. To get extended error information, call GetLastError().

                                java.lang.String lpTargetPath)
        Defines, redefines, or deletes MS-DOS device names.
        Parameters:
        dwFlags - The controllable aspects of the function - see the various DDD_XXX constants
        lpDeviceName - The MS-DOS device name string specifying the device the function is defining, redefining, or deleting. The device name string must not have a colon as the last character, unless a drive letter is being defined, redefined, or deleted. For example, drive C would be the string "C:". In no case is a trailing backslash ("\") allowed.
        lpTargetPath - The path string that will implement this device. The string is an MS-DOS path string unless the DDD_RAW_TARGET_PATH flag is specified, in which case this string is a path string.

      • QueryDosDevice

        int QueryDosDevice(java.lang.String lpDeviceName,
                           char[] lpTargetPath,
                           int ucchMax)
        Retrieves information about MS-DOS device names
        Parameters:
        lpDeviceName - An MS-DOS device name string specifying the target of the query. The device name cannot have a trailing backslash; for example, use "C:", not "C:\". This parameter can be NULL. In that case, the function will store a list of all existing MS-DOS device names into the buffer.
        lpTargetPath - A buffer that will receive the result of the query. The function fills this buffer with one or more null-terminated strings. The final null-terminated string is followed by an additional NULL. If device name is non-NULL, the function retrieves information about the particular MS-DOS device. The first null-terminated string stored into the buffer is the current mapping for the device. The other null-terminated strings represent undeleted prior mappings for the device. Each null-terminated string stored into the buffer is the name of an existing MS-DOS device, for example, \Device\HarddiskVolume1 or \Device\Floppy0.
        ucchMax - The maximum number of characters that can be stored into the buffer
        Returns:
        If the function succeeds, the return value is the number of characters stored into the buffer, otherwise zero. Use GetLastError() to get extended error information. If the buffer is too small, the function fails and the last error code is ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER.

      • FindFirstFile

        WinNT.HANDLE FindFirstFile(java.lang.String lpFileName,
                                   Pointer lpFindFileData)
        Searches a directory for a file or subdirectory with a name that matches a specific name (or partial name if wildcards are used). To specify additional attributes to use in a search, use the FindFirstFileEx function.
        Parameters:
        lpFileName - The directory or path, and the file name. The file name can include wildcard characters, for example, an asterisk (*) or a question mark (?). This parameter should not be NULL, an invalid string (for example, an empty string or a string that is missing the terminating null character), or end in a trailing backslash (\). If the string ends with a wildcard, period, or directory name, the user must have access to the root and all subdirectories on the path. In the ANSI version of this function, the name is limited to MAX_PATH characters. To extend this limit to approximately 32,000 wide characters, call the Unicode version of the function (FindFirstFileExW), and prepend "\\?\" to the path. For more information, see Naming a File. Tip Starting in Windows 10, version 1607, for the unicode version of this function (FindFirstFileExW), you can opt-in to remove the MAX_PATH character limitation without prepending "\\?\". See the "Maximum Path Limitation" section of Naming Files, Paths, and Namespaces for details.
        lpFindFileData - A pointer to the buffer that receives the file data. The pointer type is determined by the level of information that is specified in the fInfoLevelId parameter.
        Returns:
        If the function succeeds, the return value is a search handle used in a subsequent call to FindNextFile or FindClose, and the lpFindFileData parameter contains information about the first file or directory found. If the function fails or fails to locate files from the search string in the lpFileName parameter, the return value is INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE and the contents of lpFindFileData are indeterminate. To get extended error information, call the GetLastError function. If the function fails because no matching files can be found, the GetLastError function returns ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND.

        Searches a directory for a file or subdirectory with a name and attributes that match those specified. For the most basic version of this function, see FindFirstFile.
        Parameters:
        lpFileName - The directory or path, and the file name. The file name can include wildcard characters, for example, an asterisk (*) or a question mark (?). This parameter should not be NULL, an invalid string (for example, an empty string or a string that is missing the terminating null character), or end in a trailing backslash (\).

        fInfoLevelId - The information level of the returned data. This parameter is one of the FINDEX_INFO_LEVELS enumeration values.
        lpFindFileData - A pointer to the buffer that receives the file data. The pointer type is determined by the level of information that is specified in the fInfoLevelId parameter.
        fSearchOp - The type of filtering to perform that is different from wildcard matching. This parameter is one of the FINDEX_SEARCH_OPS enumeration values.
        lpSearchFilter - A pointer to the search criteria if the specified fSearchOp needs structured search information. At this time, none of the supported fSearchOp values require extended search information. Therefore, this pointer must be NULL.
        dwAdditionalFlags - Specifies additional flags that control the search. FIND_FIRST_EX_CASE_SENSITIVE (0x01) - Searches are case-sensitive. FIND_FIRST_EX_LARGE_FETCH (0x02) - Uses a larger buffer for directory queries, which can increase performance of the find operation. Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP: This value is not supported until Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7.
        Returns:
        If the function succeeds, the return value is a search handle used in a subsequent call to FindNextFile or FindClose, and the lpFindFileData parameter contains information about the first file or directory found. If the function fails or fails to locate files from the search string in the lpFileName parameter, the return value is INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE and the contents of lpFindFileData are indet
