The CreateProcess2 method executes the given command to create a new process.
HRESULT CreateProcess2( ULONG64 Server, PSTR CommandLine, PVOID OptionsBuffer, ULONG OptionsBufferSize, PCSTR InitialDirectory, PCSTR Environment );
Specifies the process server that will be attached to the process. If Server is zero, the engine will create the local process without using a process server.
Specifies the command line to execute to create the new process.
Specifies the process creation options. OptionsBuffer is a pointer to a DEBUG_CREATE_PROCESS_OPTIONS structure.
Specifies the size of the buffer OptionsBuffer. This should be set to sizeof(DEBUG_CREATE_PROCESS_OPTIONS).
Specifies the starting directory for the process. If InitialDirectory is NULL, the current directory for the process server is used.
Specifies an environment block for the new process. An environment block consists of a null-terminated block of null-terminated strings. Each string is of the form:
If Environment is set to NULL, the new process inherits the environment block of the process server. If the DEBUG_CREATE_PROCESS_THROUGH_RTL flag is set in OptionsBuffer, then Environment must be NULL.
This method may also return error values. See Return Values for more details.
||The method was successful.|
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.
