IDebugClient2::CreateProcess method

The CreateProcess method creates a process from the specified command line.

Syntax

HRESULT CreateProcess(
  ULONG64 Server,
  PSTR    CommandLine,
  ULONG   CreateFlags
);

Parameters

Server

Specifies the process server to use to attach to the process. If Server is zero, the engine will create a local process without using a process server.

CommandLine

Specifies the command line to execute to create the new process.

CreateFlags

Specifies the flags to use when creating the process. For details on these flags, see the CreateFlags member of the DEBUG_CREATE_PROCESS_OPTIONS structure.

Return Value

This method may also return error values. See Return Values for more details.

Return code Description
S_OK
The method was successful.

Remarks

This method is available only for live user-mode debugging.

If CreateFlags contains either of the flags DEBUG_PROCESS or DEBUG_ONLY_THIS_PROCESS, the engine will also attach to the newly created process; this is similar to the behavior of CreateProcessAndAttach2 with its argument ProcessId set to zero.

For more information about creating and attaching to live user-mode targets, see Live User-Mode Targets.
