Creating an Issuance License

[The AD RMS SDK leveraging functionality exposed by the client in Msdrm.dll is available for use in Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 7, Windows Server 2012, and Windows 8. It may be altered or unavailable in subsequent versions. Instead, use Active Directory Rights Management Services SDK 2.1, which leverages functionality exposed by the client in Msipc.dll.]

An issuance license can be created from scratch, from a template, or from an existing license by using the DRMCreateIssuanceLicense function. This function returns a pointer to a DRMPUBHANDLE value that contains the license handle. For more information, see the following topics:
