Remarks

The IVdsProviderPrivate::GetObject and IVdsService::GetObject methods pass a VDS_OBJECT_TYPE value as an argument to indicate an object type.

Note  Additional constants might be added to the VDS_OBJECT_TYPE enumeration in future Windows versions. For this reason, your application must be designed to gracefully handle an unrecognized VDS_OBJECT_TYPE enumeration constant.
