MsiSourceListAddMediaDiskA function

The MsiSourceListAddMediaDisk function adds or updates a disk of the media source of a registered product or patch. If the disk specified already exists, it is updated with the new values. If the disk specified does not exist, a new disk entry is created with the new values.

Syntax

UINT MsiSourceListAddMediaDiskA(
  LPCSTR            szProductCodeOrPatchCode,
  LPCSTR            szUserSid,
  MSIINSTALLCONTEXT dwContext,
  DWORD             dwOptions,
  DWORD             dwDiskId,
  LPCSTR            szVolumeLabel,
  LPCSTR            szDiskPrompt
);

Parameters

szProductCodeOrPatchCode

The ProductCode or patch GUID of the product or patch. Use a null-terminated string. If the string is longer than 39 characters, the function fails and returns ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER. This parameter cannot be NULL.

szUserSid

This parameter can be a string SID that specifies the user account that contains the product or patch. The SID is not validated or resolved. An incorrect SID can return ERROR_UNKNOWN_PRODUCT or ERROR_UNKNOWN_PATCH.

Type of SID Meaning
NULL
NULL denotes the currently logged on user. When referencing the current user account, szUserSID can be NULL and dwContext can be MSIINSTALLCONTEXT_USERMANAGED or MSIINSTALLCONTEXT_USERUNMANAGED.
User SID
Specifies enumeration for a particular user in the system. An example of user SID is "S-1-3-64-2415071341-1358098788-3127455600-2561".
 
Note  The special SID string s-1-5-18 (system) cannot be used to enumerate products or patches installed as per-machine. Setting the SID value to s-1-5-18 returns ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER. When dwContext is set to MSIINSTALLCONTEXT_MACHINE only, szUserSid must be NULL.
 
Note  The special SID string s-1-1-0 (everyone) should not be used. Setting the SID value to s-1-1-0 fails and returns ERROR_INVALID_PARAM .
 

dwContext

This parameter specifies the context of the product or patch instance. This parameter can contain one of the following values.

Type of context Meaning
MSIINSTALLCONTEXT_USERMANAGED
The product or patch instance exists in the per-user-managed context.
MSIINSTALLCONTEXT_USERUNMANAGED
The product or patch instance exists in the per-user-unmanaged context.
MSIINSTALLCONTEXT_MACHINE
The product or patch instance exists in the per-machine context.

dwOptions

The dwOptions value specifies the meaning of szProductCodeOrPatchCode.

Flag Meaning
MSICODE_PRODUCT
szProductCodeOrPatchCode is a product code GUID.
MSICODE_PATCH
szProductCodeOrPatchCode is a patch code GUID.

dwDiskId

This parameter provides the ID of the disk being added or updated.

szVolumeLabel

The szVolumeLabel provides the label of the disk being added or updated. An update overwrites the existing volume label in the registry. To change the disk prompt only, get the existing volume label from the registry and provide it in this call along with the new disk prompt. Passing a NULL or empty string for szVolumeLabel registers an empty string (0 bytes in length) as the volume label.

szDiskPrompt

On entry to MsiSourceListAddMediaDisk, szDiskPrompt provides the disk prompt of the disk being added or updated. An update overwrites the registered disk prompt.
To change the volume label only, get the existing disk prompt that is registered and provide it when calling MsiSourceListAddMediaDisk along with the new volume label. Passing NULL or an empty string registers an empty string (0 bytes in length) as the disk prompt.

Return Value

The MsiSourceListAddMediaDisk function returns the following values.

Value Meaning
ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED
The user does not have the ability to read the specified media source or the specified product or patch. This does not indicate whether a media source, product or patch was found.
ERROR_BAD_CONFIGURATION
The configuration data is corrupt.
ERROR_INSTALL_SERVICE_FAILURE
The Windows Installer service could not be accessed.
ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER
An invalid parameter was passed to the function.
ERROR_SUCCESS
The value was successfully reordered.
ERROR_UNKNOWN_PATCH
The patch was not found.
ERROR_UNKNOWN_PRODUCT
The product was not found.
ERROR_FUNCTION_FAILED
Unexpected internal failure.

Remarks

Administrators can modify the installation of a product or patch instance that exists under the machine context or under their own per-user context (managed or unmanaged.) They can modify the installation of a product or patch instance that exists under any user's per-user-managed context. Administrators cannot modify another user's installation of a product or patch instance that exists under that other user's per-user-unmanaged context.

Non-administrators cannot modify the installation of a product or patch instance that exists under another user's per-user context (managed or unmanaged.) They can modify the installation of a product or patch instance that exists under their own per-user-unmanaged context. They can modify the installation of a product or patch instance under the machine context or their own per-user-managed context only if they are enabled to browse for a product or patch source. Users can be enabled to browse for sources by setting policy. For more information, see DisableBrowse, AllowLockdownBrowse, AllowLockDownMedia and AlwaysInstallElevated policies.
