LookupPrivilegeName info  Overview  Group

The LookupPrivilegeName function retrieves the name corresponding to the privilege represented on a specific system by a specified locally unique identifier (LUID).

BOOL LookupPrivilegeName(

    LPCTSTR lpSystemName,

// address of string specifying the system

    PLUID lpLuid,

// address of locally unique identifier

    LPTSTR lpName,

// address of string specifying the privilege

    LPDWORD cbName 

// address of size of string for displayable name



Points to a null-terminated string specifying the name of the system on which the privilege name is looked up. If a null string is specified, the function attempts to find the privilege name on the local system.
Points to the locally unique identifier by which the privilege is known on the target system.
Points to a buffer that receives a null-terminated string that represents the privilege’s name. For example, this string could be “SeSecurityPrivilege”.
Points to a variable specifying the size, in characters, of the lpName buffer. When the function returns, this parameter contains the length of the privilege name, not including the terminating null character. If the buffer pointed to by the lpName parameter is too small, this variable contains the required size when the function returns.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.


For this release of Windows NT, only the privileges specified in the Defined Privileges section of WINNT.H are supported by this function.
