SetupQueueCopySectionW function (setupapi.h)

[This function is available for use in the operating systems indicated in the Requirements section. It may be altered or unavailable in subsequent versions. SetupAPI should no longer be used for installing applications. Instead, use the Windows Installer for developing application installers. SetupAPI continues to be used for installing device drivers.]

The SetupQueueCopySection function places all the files in a section of an INF file in a setup queue for copying. The section must be in the correct Copy Files format and the INF file must contain SourceDisksFiles and SourceDisksNames sections (or have had the INF files containing those sections appended).

Syntax

WINSETUPAPI BOOL SetupQueueCopySectionW(
  HSPFILEQ QueueHandle,
  PCWSTR   SourceRootPath,
  HINF     InfHandle,
  HINF     ListInfHandle,
  PCWSTR   Section,
  DWORD    CopyStyle
);

Parameters

QueueHandle

Handle to a setup file queue, as returned by SetupOpenFileQueue.

SourceRootPath

Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the root of the source for this copy, such as A:.

InfHandle

Handle to an open INF file that contains the SourceDisksFiles and SourceDisksNames sections. If ListInfHandle is not specified, InfHandle contains the section names. If platform-specific sections exist for the user's system (for example, SourceDisksNames.x86 and SourceDisksFiles.x86), the platform-specific section will be used.

ListInfHandle

Optional handle to an open INF file that contains the section to queue for copying. If ListInfHandle is not specified, InfHandle is assumed to contain the section.

Section

Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the name of the section to be queued for copy.

CopyStyle

Flags that control the behavior of the file copy operation. These flags may be a combination of the following values.

SP_COPY_DELETESOURCE

Delete the source file upon successful copy. The caller is not notified if the delete fails.

SP_COPY_REPLACEONLY

Copy the file only if doing so would overwrite a file at the destination path.

SP_COPY_NEWER_OR_SAME

Examine each file being copied to see if its version resources indicate that it is either equal in version or not newer than an existing copy on the target.

The file version information used during version checks is that specified in the dwFileVersionMS and dwFileVersionLS members of a VS_FIXEDFILEINFO structure, as filled in by the version functions. If one of the files does not have version resources, or if they have identical version information, the source file is considered newer.

If the source file is not equal in version or newer, and CopyMsgHandler is specified, the caller is notified and may cancel the copy. If CopyMsgHandler is not specified, the file is not copied.

SP_COPY_NEWER_ONLY

Examine each file being copied to see if its version resources indicate that it is not newer than an existing copy on the target. If the source file is newer but not equal in version to the existing target, the file is copied.

SP_COPY_NOOVERWRITE

Check whether the target file exists, and, if so, notify the caller who may veto the copy. If CopyMsgHandler is not specified, the file is not overwritten.

SP_COPY_NODECOMP

Do not decompress the file. When this flag is set, the target file is not given the uncompressed form of the source name (if appropriate). For example, copying f:\x86s\cmd.ex_ to \install\temp results in a target file of \install\temp\cmd.ex_. If the SP_COPY_NODECOMP flag was not specified, the file would be decompressed and the target would be called \install\temp\cmd.exe. The filename part of DestinationName, if specified, is stripped and replaced with the filename of the source file. When SP_COPY_NODECOMP is specified, no language or version information can be checked.

SP_COPY_LANGUAGEAWARE

Examine each file being copied to see if its language differs from the language of any existing file already on the target. If so, and CopyMsgHandler is specified, the caller is notified and may cancel the copy. If CopyMsgHandler is not specified, the file is not copied.

SP_COPY_SOURCE_ABSOLUTE

SourceFile is a full source path. Do not look it up in the SourceDisksNames section of the INF file.

SP_COPY_SOURCEPATH_ABSOLUTE

SourcePathRoot is the full path part of the source file. Ignore the relative source specified in the SourceDisksNames section of the INF file for the source media where the file is located. This flag is ignored if SP_COPY_SOURCE_ABSOLUTE is specified.

SP_COPY_FORCE_IN_USE

If the target exists, behave as if it is in use and queue the file for copying on the next system reboot.

SP_COPY_IN_USE_NEEDS_REBOOT

If the file was in use during the copy operation, alert the user that the system needs to be rebooted.

SP_COPY_NOSKIP

Do not give the user the option to skip a file.

SP_COPY_FORCE_NOOVERWRITE

Check whether the target file exists, and, if so, the file is not overwritten. The caller is not notified.

SP_COPY_FORCE_NEWER

Examine each file being copied to see if its version resources (or time stamps for non-image files) indicate that it is not newer than an existing copy on the target. If the file being copied is not newer, the file is not copied. The caller is not notified.

SP_COPY_WARNIFSKIP

If the user tries to skip a file, warn them that skipping a file may affect the installation. (Used for system-critical files.)

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is a nonzero value.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

Remarks

If a UNC directory is specified as the target directory of a file copy operation, you must ensure it exists before the queue is committed. The setup functions do not check for the existence of and do not create UNC directories. If the target UNC directory does not exist, the file copy will fail.

This function requires a Windows INF file. Some older INF file formats may not be supported.

Note

The setupapi.h header defines SetupQueueCopySection as an alias which automatically selects the ANSI or Unicode version of this function based on the definition of the UNICODE preprocessor constant. Mixing usage of the encoding-neutral alias with code that not encoding-neutral can lead to mismatches that result in compilation or runtime errors. For more information, see Conventions for Function Prototypes.
