STARTUPINFOEXW structure (winbase.h)

Specifies the window station, desktop, standard handles, and attributes for a new process. It is used with the CreateProcess and CreateProcessAsUser functions.

Syntax

typedef struct _STARTUPINFOEXW {
  STARTUPINFOW                 StartupInfo;
  LPPROC_THREAD_ATTRIBUTE_LIST lpAttributeList;
} STARTUPINFOEXW, *LPSTARTUPINFOEXW;

Members

StartupInfo

A STARTUPINFO structure.

lpAttributeList

An attribute list. This list is created by the InitializeProcThreadAttributeList function.

Remarks

Be sure to set the cb member of the STARTUPINFO structure to sizeof(STARTUPINFOEX).

Note

The winbase.h header defines STARTUPINFOEX 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.
