RESTOREPOINTINFOA structure (srrestoreptapi.h)

Contains information used by the SRSetRestorePoint function.

Syntax

typedef struct _RESTOREPTINFOA {
  DWORD dwEventType;
  DWORD dwRestorePtType;
  INT64 llSequenceNumber;
  CHAR  szDescription[MAX_DESC];
} RESTOREPOINTINFOA, *PRESTOREPOINTINFOA;

Members

dwEventType

The type of event. This member can be one of the following values.

Event type Meaning
BEGIN_NESTED_SYSTEM_CHANGE
102
A system change has begun. A subsequent nested call does not create a new restore point.

Subsequent calls must use END_NESTED_SYSTEM_CHANGE, not END_SYSTEM_CHANGE.

BEGIN_SYSTEM_CHANGE
100
A system change has begun.
END_NESTED_SYSTEM_CHANGE
103
A system change has ended.
END_SYSTEM_CHANGE
101
A system change has ended.

dwRestorePtType

The type of restore point. This member can be one of the following values.

Restore point type Meaning
APPLICATION_INSTALL
0
An application has been installed.
APPLICATION_UNINSTALL
1
An application has been uninstalled.
DEVICE_DRIVER_INSTALL
10
A device driver has been installed.
MODIFY_SETTINGS
12
An application has had features added or removed.
CANCELLED_OPERATION
13
An application needs to delete the restore point it created. For example, an application would use this flag when a user cancels an installation.

llSequenceNumber

The sequence number of the restore point. To end a system change, set this to the sequence number returned by the previous call to SRSetRestorePoint.

szDescription

The description to be displayed so the user can easily identify a restore point. The maximum length of an ANSI string is MAX_DESC. The maximum length of a Unicode string is MAX_DESC_W. For more information, see Restore Point Description Text.

Remarks

Note

The srrestoreptapi.h header defines RESTOREPOINTINFO 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.
