Retrieves the process affinity mask for the specified process and the system affinity mask for the system.
BOOL GetProcessAffinityMask( HANDLE hProcess, PDWORD_PTR lpProcessAffinityMask, PDWORD_PTR lpSystemAffinityMask );
A handle to the process whose affinity mask is desired.
This handle must have the PROCESS_QUERY_INFORMATION or PROCESS_QUERY_LIMITED_INFORMATION access right. For more information, see Process Security and Access Rights.
Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP: The handle must have the PROCESS_QUERY_INFORMATION access right.
A pointer to a variable that receives the affinity mask for the specified process.
A pointer to a variable that receives the affinity mask for the system.
If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero and the function sets the variables pointed to by lpProcessAffinityMask and lpSystemAffinityMask to the appropriate affinity masks.
On a system with more than 64 processors, if the threads of the calling process are in a single processor group, the function sets the variables pointed to by lpProcessAffinityMask and lpSystemAffinityMask to the process affinity mask and the processor mask of active logical processors for that group. If the calling process contains threads in multiple groups, the function returns zero for both affinity masks.
If the function fails, the return value is zero, and the values of the variables pointed to by lpProcessAffinityMask and lpSystemAffinityMask are undefined. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
A process affinity mask is a bit vector in which each bit represents the processors that a process is allowed to run on. A system affinity mask is a bit vector in which each bit represents the processors that are configured into a system.
A process affinity mask is a subset of the system affinity mask. A process is only allowed to run on the processors configured into a system. Therefore, the process affinity mask cannot specify a 1 bit for a processor when the system affinity mask specifies a 0 bit for that processor.
