NetFileEnum info  Overview  Group

The NetFileEnum function supplies information about some or all open files on a server, allowing the user to supply a resume handle and get required information through repeated calls to the function.

Windows 95:
This function is exported by SVRAPI.DLL. Therefore, link your application with SVRAPI.LIB.

Security Requirements

Only members of the Administrators or Account Operators local group can successfully execute NetFileEnum.


    LPTSTR servername,

    LPTSTR basepath,

Pointer to a Unicode string containing the name of the remote server on which the function is to execute. A NULL pointer or string specifies the local computer.
Pointer to a Unicode string containing a qualifier for the returned information. If NULL, all open resources are enumerated. If not NULL, the function enumerates only resources that have basepath as a prefix. A prefix is the path component up to a backslash.
Pointer to a Unicode string that specifies the name of the user. If not NULL, username serves as a qualifier to the enumeration. The files returned are limited to those that have user names matching the qualifier. If username is NULL, no user-name qualifier is used.
Specifies one of the following values to return the level of information pointed to in the bufptr parameter.




Return file identification number. The returned buffer will contain an array of FILE_INFO_2 structures.


Return information about the file. The returned buffer will contain an array of FILE_INFO_3 structures.

Pointer to the address of the return information structure.
Preferred maximum length, in 8-bit bytes, of returned data.
Pointer to a DWORD that contains the actual enumerated element count.
Pointer to a DWORD that contains the total number of entries that could have been enumerated from the current resume position.
Pointer to a DWORD that contains a resume handle, which is used to continue an existing file search. The handle should be zero on the first call and left unchanged for subsequent calls. If resume_handle is NULL, then no resume handle is stored.

Return Values

If the function returns account information, the return value is NERR_Success.

If the function fails, the return value is one of the following error codes.




The user does not have access to the requested information.


The value specified for the Level parameter is invalid.


More entries are available with subsequent calls.
