GetApplicationUserModelId function (appmodel.h)

Gets the application user model ID for the specified process.

Syntax

LONG GetApplicationUserModelId(
  [in]      HANDLE hProcess,
  [in, out] UINT32 *applicationUserModelIdLength,
  [out]     PWSTR  applicationUserModelId
);

Parameters

[in] hProcess

A handle to the process. This handle must have the PROCESS_QUERY_LIMITED_INFORMATION access right. For more info, see Process Security and Access Rights.

[in, out] applicationUserModelIdLength

On input, the size of the applicationUserModelId buffer, in wide characters. On success, the size of the buffer used, including the null terminator.

[out] applicationUserModelId

A pointer to a buffer that receives the application user model ID.

Return value

If the function succeeds it returns ERROR_SUCCESS. Otherwise, the function returns an error code. The possible error codes include the following.

Return code Description
APPMODEL_ERROR_NO_APPLICATION
The process has no application identity.
ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER
The buffer is not large enough to hold the data. The required size is specified by applicationUserModelIdLength.

Remarks

For info about string size limits, see Identity constants.
