The SERVICE_TYPE_INFO_ABS structure contains information about a network service type. You use a SERVICE_TYPE_INFO_ABS structure to add a network service type to a name space.

typedef struct _SERVICE_TYPE_INFO_ABS { 

    LPTSTR                  lpTypeName; 

    DWORD                   dwValueCount; 





Points to a zero-terminated string that is the name of the network service type. This name is the same in all name spaces, and is used by the GetTypeByName and GetNameByType functions.
Specifies the number of SERVICE_TYPE_VALUE_ABS structures in the Values member array that follows dwValueCount.
An array of SERVICE_TYPE_VALUE_ABS structures.

Each of these structures contains information about a service type value that the operating system or network service may need when an instance of this network service type is registered with a name space.

The information in these structures may be specific to a name-space. For example, if a network service uses the SAP name space, but does not have a GUID that contains the SAP identifier (SAPID), it defines the SAPID in a SERVICE_TYPE_VALUE_ABS structure.


When you use the SetService function to add a network service type to a name space, the SERVICE_TYPE_INFO_ABS structure is passed as the ServiceSpecificInfo BLOB member of a SERVICE_INFO structure. Although the ServiceSpecificInfo member generally should not contain pointers, an exception is made in the case of the SERVICE_TYPE_INFO_ABS and SERVICE_TYPE_VALUE_ABS structures.
