Note  WinINet does not support server implementations. In addition, it should not be used from a service nor when impersonating a security context. For server implementations or services use Microsoft Windows HTTP Services (WinHTTP).


The winineti.h header defines FreeUrlCacheSpace 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.
