Registers resources to a Restart Manager session. The Restart Manager uses the list of resources registered with the session to determine which applications and services must be shut down and restarted. Resources can be identified by filenames, service short names, or RM_UNIQUE_PROCESS structures that describe running applications. The RmRegisterResources function can be used by a primary or secondary installer.
DWORD RmRegisterResources( DWORD dwSessionHandle, UINT nFiles, LPCWSTR  rgsFileNames, UINT nApplications, RM_UNIQUE_PROCESS  rgApplications, UINT nServices, LPCWSTR  rgsServiceNames );
A handle to an existing Restart Manager session.
The number of files being registered.
An array of null-terminated strings of full filename paths. This parameter can be NULL if nFiles is 0.
The number of processes being registered.
An array of RM_UNIQUE_PROCESS structures. This parameter can be NULL if nApplications is 0.
The number of services to be registered.
An array of null-terminated strings of service short names. This parameter can be NULL if nServices is 0.
This is the most recent error received. The function can return one of the system error codes that are defined in Winerror.h.
||The resources specified have been registered.|
||A Restart Manager function could not obtain a Registry write mutex in the allotted time. A system restart is recommended because further use of the Restart Manager is likely to fail.|
||One or more arguments are not correct. This error value is returned by Restart Manager function if a NULL pointer or 0 is passed in a parameter that requires a non-null and non-zero value.|
||An operation was unable to read or write to the registry.|
||A Restart Manager operation could not complete because not enough memory was available.|
||No Restart Manager session exists for the handle supplied.|
Each call to the RmRegisterResources function performs relatively expensive write operations. Do not call this function once per file, instead group related files together into components and register these together.
