GetMappedFileNameA function

Checks whether the specified address is within a memory-mapped file in the address space of the specified process. If so, the function returns the name of the memory-mapped file.

Syntax

DWORD GetMappedFileNameA(
  HANDLE hProcess,
  LPVOID lpv,
  LPSTR  lpFilename,
  DWORD  nSize
);

Parameters

hProcess

A handle to the process. The handle must have the PROCESS_QUERY_INFORMATION and PROCESS_VM_READ access rights. For more information, see Process Security and Access Rights.

lpv

The address to be verified.

lpFilename

A pointer to the buffer that receives the name of the memory-mapped file to which the address specified by lpv belongs.

nSize

The size of the lpFilename buffer, in characters.

Return Value

If the function succeeds, the return value specifies the length of the string copied to the buffer, in characters.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

Remarks

Starting with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, Psapi.h establishes version numbers for the PSAPI functions. The PSAPI version number affects the name used to call the function and the library that a program must load.

If PSAPI_VERSION is 2 or greater, this function is defined as K32GetMappedFileName in Psapi.h and exported in Kernel32.lib and Kernel32.dll. If PSAPI_VERSION is 1, this function is defined as GetMappedFileName in Psapi.h and exported in Psapi.lib and Psapi.dll as a wrapper that calls K32GetMappedFileName.

Programs that must run on earlier versions of Windows as well as Windows 7 and later versions should always call this function as GetMappedFileName. To ensure correct resolution of symbols, add Psapi.lib to the TARGETLIBS macro and compile the program with -DPSAPI_VERSION=1. To use run-time dynamic linking, load Psapi.dll.

In Windows Server 2012, this function is supported by the following technologies.

Technology Supported
Server Message Block (SMB) 3.0 protocol Yes
SMB 3.0 Transparent Failover (TFO) Yes
SMB 3.0 with Scale-out File Shares (SO) Yes
Cluster Shared Volume File System (CsvFS) Yes
Resilient File System (ReFS) Yes
