    LPWSTR groupname,

    DWORD level,

    LPBYTE buf,

Specify group name. The specified buffer points to an array of GROUP_INFO_0 structures.


Specifiy group name and comment. The specified buffer points to an array of GROUP_INFO_1 structures.


Specify information about the group. The specified buffer points to an array of GROUP_INFO_2 structures.


Specify comments about the group. The specified buffer points to an array of GROUP_INFO_1002 structures.

Pointer to a buffer containing the global group information.
