LSGetMessage info  Overview  Group

Notice:This is preliminary documentation for technology that will be supported in future releases of Microsoft Windows.

The LSGetMessage function returns the message string associated with a license service function status code.


    LS_HANDLE LicenseHandle,

// handle to the license context


// any status code returned by a license service function

    LS_STR *Buffer,

// pointer to buffer returning error message string

    LS_ULONG BufferSize

// maximum size of buffer string



[in] Specifies the handle to the license context. This parameter must be a handle created with the LSRequest function.
[in] Specifies any status code returned by a license service function.
[out] Points to a buffer in which a localized error message string will be returned.
[in] Specifies, in bytes, the maximum size of the string returned in the Buffer parameter.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is LS_SUCCESS.

If the function fails, the return value is a status code. For extended error information, call LSGetMessage to return the status text corresponding to the status code. The LSGetMessage function may return one of the following status codes:




The handle used on the call does not describe a valid licensing system context.


The request cannot be completed because of insufficient resources, such as memory.


A warning occurred while looking up an error message string with the LSGetMessage function.


An unrecognized status code was passed to the LSGetMessage function.


The buffer that the Buffer parameter points to is too small to accommodate the text string to be returned; or the challenge data structure is too small to accommodate the challenge response.


One or more of the arguments is incorrect.


The LSGetMessage function returns a string describing a specific error, and possibly a suggested action to be taken in response to it. If the value specified in the Value parameter is the constant LS_USE_LAST, then the last error associated with the supplied licensing handle, plus its associated data, is returned. Otherwise, the function uses the supplied error code.
