RQueryServiceConfigW (Opnum 17)

The RQueryServiceConfigW method returns the configuration parameters of the specified service.

 DWORD RQueryServiceConfigW(
   [in] SC_RPC_HANDLE hService,
   [out] LPQUERY_SERVICE_CONFIGW lpServiceConfig,
   [in, range(0, 1024*8)] DWORD cbBufSize,
   [out] LPBOUNDED_DWORD_8K pcbBytesNeeded

hService: An SC_RPC_HANDLE (section 2.2.4) data type that defines the handle to the service record that MUST have been created previously, using one of the open methods specified in section 3.1.4. The SERVICE_QUERY_CONFIG access right MUST have been granted to the caller when the RPC context handle was created.

lpServiceConfig: A pointer to a buffer that contains the QUERY_SERVICE_CONFIGW (section 2.2.15) structure.

cbBufSize: The size, in bytes, of the lpServiceConfig parameter.

pcbBytesNeeded: An LPBOUNDED_DWORD_8K (section 2.2.8) data type that defines the pointer to a variable that contains the number of bytes needed to return all the configuration information if the method fails.

Return Values: The method returns 0x00000000 (ERROR_SUCCESS) on success; otherwise, it returns one of the following error codes.

Return value/code




The SERVICE_QUERY_CONFIG access right had not been granted to the caller when the RPC context handle was created.



The handle is no longer valid.



The data area passed to a system call is too small.



The system is shutting down.

In response to this request from the client, for a successful operation the server MUST query the configuration information stored in the SCM database in the service record identified by the hService parameter of the client request. The server MUST return this configuration data by setting the lpServiceConfig parameter as specified in 2.2.15.

The server MUST set the required buffer size, in bytes, in the pcbBytesNeeded parameter. If the buffer pointed to by lpServiceConfig is insufficient to hold all the configuration data, the server MUST fail the call with ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER (122).
