IVdsService::QueryProviders method (vds.h)
Returns an enumeration object containing a list of the hardware and software providers known to VDS.
HRESULT QueryProviders( DWORD masks, IEnumVdsObject **ppEnum );
The provider mask enumerated by VDS_QUERY_PROVIDER_FLAG. Callers can specify a software provider mask, a hardware provider mask, or both.
The address of an IEnumVdsObject interface pointer that can be used to enumerate the providers as provider objects. For more information, see Working with Enumeration Objects. Callers must release the interface and each of the provider objects when they are no longer needed by calling the IUnknown::Release method.
This method can return standard HRESULT values, such as E_INVALIDARG or E_OUTOFMEMORY, and VDS-specific return values. It can also return converted system error codes using the HRESULT_FROM_WIN32 macro. Errors can originate from VDS itself or from the underlying VDS provider that is being used. Possible return values include the following.
||The enumeration is returned successfully.|
||VDS failed to initialize. If an application calls this method before the service finishes initializing, the method is blocked until the initialization completes. If the initialization fails, this error is returned.|
