If the function fails, the return value is FALSE. For extended error information, call GetLastError. One possible error code is the following.

Return code Description
The store was opened read-only, and a delete operation is not allowed.


All subsequent get or find operations for the CRL in this store fail. However, memory allocated for the CRL is not freed until all duplicated contexts have also been freed.

The pCrlContext parameter is always freed by this function by using CertFreeCRLContext, even for an error.
