#include <windows.h>
#include <fwpmu.h>
#include <stdio.h>

#pragma comment(lib, "Fwpuclnt.lib")

// Hard-coded file name for demonstration purposes.
#define FILE_PATH1 L"C:\\Program Files\\SomeAppFolder\\SomeApplication.exe"


int main()
{
    DWORD  result = ERROR_SUCCESS; 
    
    FWP_BYTE_BLOB *fwpApplicationByteBlob = NULL;
     
    printf("Retrieving Id for application to allow through firewall.\n");
    result = FwpmGetAppIdFromFileName0(FILE_PATH1, &fwpApplicationByteBlob);

    if (result != ERROR_SUCCESS)
    {
