[Beginning with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, this function has been deprecated. Please use CM_Free_Res_Des instead.]
CMAPI CONFIGRET CM_Free_Res_Des_Ex( PRES_DES prdResDes, RES_DES rdResDes, ULONG ulFlags, HMACHINE hMachine );
Caller-supplied location to receive a handle to the configuration's previous resource descriptor. This parameter can be NULL. For more information, see the following Remarks section.
Caller-supplied handle to the resource descriptor to be removed. This handle must have been previously obtained by calling one of the following functions:
Not used, must be zero.
Caller-supplied machine handle, obtained from a previous call to CM_Connect_Machine.
If the operation succeeds, the function returns CR_SUCCESS. Otherwise, it returns one of the CR_-prefixed error codes defined in Cfgmgr32.h.
Resource descriptors for each configuration are stored in an array. If you specify an address for prdResDes, then CM_Free_Res_Des returns a handle to the resource descriptor that was previous, in the array, to the one removed. If the handle specified by rdResDes represents the resource descriptor located first in the array, then prdResDes receives a handle to the logical configuration.
Note that calling CM_Free_Res_Des_Ex frees the resource descriptor, but not the descriptor's handle. To free the handle, call CM_Free_Res_Des_Handle_Ex.
Callers of this function must have SeLoadDriverPrivilege. (Privileges are described in the Microsoft Windows SDK documentation.)
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.
