advapi32.dll - File permissionsMiscellaneous Forums/Win32 Discussion/advapi32.dll - File permissions
I am writting a Backup tool, everything works well, but as you know, BB's CopyFile does not care about File permissions.
I found out that the Library "advapi32" does such stuff.
my decls looks like this
GetFileSecurityA%(lpFileName*, info% ):"GetFileSecurityA"
So im trying to use that function like this:
f_string$=("D:\liste.xls") len_f_string=Len(f_string$) len_f_string=len_f_string+1 Print len_f_string fh=CreateBank(len_f_string) For i= 0 To len_f_string-1 PokeByte(fh,i,Chr(Mid(f_string$,1,1))) Next GetFileSecurityA%(fh, 1)
But i dont get it to work at all.
So my question is, does anybody know the WinApi good?
Could you please help me, im new to this stuff and i am pretty lost.
Thank you very much, greetings
use <code> or <codebox> tags around oyur code, using [ and ]instead of < and > :)
I can't offer much help, except for
This seems to be returning a value. So you may want to check that with
Sec%=GetFileSecurityA%(fh, 1) Print Str(Sec%)
Also, someone with more knowledge than me may be able to clarify, but I am not sure if passing the bytes for the filepath is the way to give the file to the function. You may need to use a separate dll function to get the file as a handle or something first???
Ok sorry i will use that next time.
Yeah i forgot, but i knew that it returns a value, but it did never work properly, for they are some optional parameters that i dont really understand.
I made a little workaround, using the tool fileacl, it does just the same ;)
Somebody told me to pass the bytes like that, i think that should be correct...
Anyway, thanks for your time :)
