CeFindNextDatabaseEx (RAPI) (Windows CE 5.0)

Send Feedback

This function retrieves the next database in an enumeration context.

CeFindNextDatabaseEx is a remote application interface (RAPI), which enables an application running on a desktop computer to make function calls on a Windows CE–based device.

CEOID CeFindNextDatabaseEx( HANDLE hEnum,PCEGUID pceguid);


  • hEnum
    [in] Handle returned from CeFindFirstDatabaseEx.
  • pceguid
    [in] Pointer to the CEGUID that contains the globally unique identifier of a mounted database.

Return Values

A valid CEOID indicates success. Zero indicates failure or a lack of additional databases. Call CeGetLastError to get the extended error information. Possible values for CeGetLastError include the following.

Value Description
ERROR_NO_MORE_ITEMS There are no more databases to enumerate.
ERROR_KEY_DELETED A database was deleted during enumeration.


To find all matching databases, CeFindNextDatabaseEx (RAPI) is called in a loop until 0 is returned. If a database is deleted during an enumeration, CeFindNextDatabaseEx (RAPI) fails and returns error ERROR_KEY_DELETED. If this error occurs, you must restart the enumeration with a call to CeFindFirstDatabaseEx (RAPI). When enumeration is complete, the hEnum handle must be closed by calling the CeCloseHandle (RAPI) function.

Note   Earlier versions of Windows CE assigned OIDs to objects in other file systems, such as the FAT file system. These OIDs were guaranteed to be unique within a volume, but not across multiple volumes. Effective with version 3.0, only objects in the object store have valid, unique OIDs and the object store is the only volume that can return an object identifier.
