CoFreeLibrary function (objbase.h)

Frees a library that, when loaded, was specified to be freed explicitly.

Note  This function is provided for compatibility with 16-bit Windows.
 

Syntax

void CoFreeLibrary(
  HINSTANCE hInst
);

Parameters

hInst

A handle to the library module to be freed, as returned by the CoLoadLibrary function.

Return value

None

Remarks

The CoFreeLibrary function should be called to free a library that is to be freed explicitly. This is established when the library is loaded with the bAutoFree parameter of CoLoadLibrary set to FALSE. It is illegal to free a library explicitly when the corresponding CoLoadLibrary call specifies that it be freed automatically (the bAutoFree parameter is set to TRUE).
