  _In_       LPCSTR szInfSection,
  _In_       LPCSTR szDir,
  _In_       LPCSTR szTitle,
  _In_       HANDLE *phEXE,
  _In_       DWORD  dwFlags,
  _Reserved_ LPVOID pvReserved
);

Parameters

Return value

Returns one of the following values.

Return code Description
S_OK

S_ASYNCHRONOUS

Examples

The following C++ example loads RunSetupCommand from the helper DLL, and executes the INF file section.

#include <advpub.h>

HRESULT RunINFSection(
    LPCSTR szInfFile,
    LPCSTR szInfSection)
{
    HRESULT   hr = E_FAIL;
    HINSTANCE hAdvpack;

    hAdvpack = LoadLibrary(TEXT("advpack.dll"));
    if (hAdvpack != NULL)
    {
        RUNSETUPCOMMAND pfRunSetupCommand =
            (RUNSETUPCOMMAND)GetProcAddress(
                    hAdvpack,
                    "RunSetupCommand");

        if (pfRunSetupCommand != NULL)
        {
            hr = pfRunSetupCommand(NULL,
                    szInfFile,
                    szInfSection,
                    ".",
                    NULL,
                    NULL,
                    RSC_FLAG_INF | RSC_FLAG_QUIET,
                    NULL);            
        }

        FreeLibrary(hAdvpack);
    }
    else
        hr = HRESULT_FROM_WIN32(GetLastError());

    return hr;
}
