[Beginning with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, this function has been deprecated. Please use CM_Add_Empty_Log_Conf instead.]
The CM_Add_Empty_Log_Conf_Ex function creates an empty logical configuration, for a specified configuration type and a specified device instance, on either the local or a remote machine.
CMAPI CONFIGRET CM_Add_Empty_Log_Conf_Ex( PLOG_CONF plcLogConf, DEVINST dnDevInst, PRIORITY Priority, ULONG ulFlags, HMACHINE hMachine );
Pointer to a location to receive the handle to an empty logical configuration.
Caller-supplied device instance handle that is bound to the machine handle supplied by hMachine.
Caller-supplied configuration priority value. For a list of values, see the Priority description for CM_Add_Empty_Log_Conf.
Caller-supplied flags that specify the type of the logical configuration. For a list of flags, see the description ulFlags description for CM_Add_Empty_Log_Conf.
Caller-supplied machine handle to which the caller-supplied device instance handle is bound.
If the operation succeeds, the function returns CR_SUCCESS. Otherwise, it returns one of the CR_-prefixed error codes defined in Cfgmgr32.h.
Calling CM_Add_Empty_Log_Conf_Ex can cause the handles returned by CM_Get_First_Log_Conf_Ex and CM_Get_Next_Log_Conf_Ex to become invalid. Thus if you want to obtain logical configurations after calling CM_Add_Empty_Log_Conf_Ex, your code must call CM_Get_First_Log_Conf_Ex again and start at the first configuration.
To remove a logical configuration created by CM_Add_Empty_Log_Conf_Ex, call CM_Free_Log_Conf_Ex.
The handle received in plcLogConf must be explicitly freed by calling CM_Free_Log_Conf_Handle.
Callers of this function must have SeLoadDriverPrivilege. (Privileges are described in the Microsoft Windows SDK documentation.)
For information about using device instance handles that are bound to a local or a remote machine, see CM_Get_Child_Ex.
Functionality to access remote machines has been removed in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 and later operating systems thus you cannot access remote machines when running on these versions of Windows.
