FindFirstFileExFromAppW function (fileapifromapp.h)
Searches a directory for a file or subdirectory with a name and attributes that match those specified. The behavior of this function is identical to FindFirstFileEx, except that this function adheres to the Universal Windows Platform app security model.
WINSTORAGEAPI HANDLE FindFirstFileExFromAppW( LPCWSTR lpFileName, FINDEX_INFO_LEVELS fInfoLevelId, LPVOID lpFindFileData, FINDEX_SEARCH_OPS fSearchOp, LPVOID lpSearchFilter, DWORD dwAdditionalFlags ) noexcept;
The directory or path, and the file name. The file name can include wildcard characters, for example, an asterisk (*) or a question mark (?).
This parameter should not be NULL, an invalid string (for example, an empty string or a string that is missing the terminating null character), or end in a trailing backslash (\).
If the string ends with a wildcard, period, or directory name, the user must have access to the root and all subdirectories on the path.
For information about opting out of the MAX_PATH limitation without prepending "\\?\", see the "Maximum Path Length Limitation" section of Naming Files, Paths, and Namespaces for details.
The information level of the returned data.
This parameter is one of the FINDEX_INFO_LEVELS enumeration values.
A pointer to the buffer that receives the file data.
The pointer type is determined by the level of information that is specified in the fInfoLevelId parameter.
The type of filtering to perform that is different from wildcard matching.
This parameter is one of the FINDEX_SEARCH_OPS enumeration values.
A pointer to the search criteria if the specified fSearchOp needs structured search information.
At this time, none of the supported fSearchOp values require extended search information. Therefore, this pointer must be NULL.
Specifies additional flags that control the search.
Searches are case-sensitive.
Uses a larger buffer for directory queries, which can increase performance of the find operation.
Limits the results to files that are physically on disk. This flag is only relevant when a file virtualization filter is present.
If the function succeeds, the return value is a search handle used in a subsequent call to FindNextFile or FindClose, and the lpFindFileData parameter contains information about the first file or directory found.
If the function fails or fails to locate files from the search string in the lpFileName parameter, the return value is INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE and the contents of lpFindFileData are indeterminate. To get extended error information, call the GetLastError function.
