This function enables an application to determine quickly if an object is FDRM-protected. An application can then display an indication that the content is FDRM-protected.

  LPCTSTR pszFile,


  • pszFile
    [in] The fully qualified path to the file being checked, including the file extension.
  • pfDRM
    [out] A pointer to a BOOL variable that is set to TRUE if the object pointed to by the file is FDRM-protected; set to FALSE otherwise.

Applications should use the SUCCEEDED and FAILED macros to check the results. The following table shows additional HRESULT values that may be returned.
