Problem with WinAPI

P: n/a
I use some of Windows Terminal Services APIs in my app.

The is an API function which enumerates sessions on a terminal server.

It uses a pointer from another API function to know on which exactly server
to operate.

But whatever I do the function always get sessions on my local WinXP
machine, not the required server.

Can someone have a look?

TIA

Here is the code:

<StructLayout(LayoutKind.Sequential, CharSet:=CharSet.Auto)> _
Private Structure WTS_SESSION_INFO
Dim SessionID As Int32 'DWORD integer
Dim pWinStationName As String ' integer LPTSTR - Pointer to a
null-terminated string containing the name of the WinStation for this
session
Dim State As WTS_CONNECTSTATE_CLASS
End Structure

Friend Structure strSessionsInfo
Dim SessionID As Integer
Dim StationName As String
Dim ConnectionState As String
End Structure

Private Enum WTS_CONNECTSTATE_CLASS
WTSActive
WTSConnected
WTSConnectQuery
WTSShadow
WTSDisconnected
WTSIdle
WTSListen
WTSReset
WTSDown
WTSInit
End Enum

<DllImport("wtsapi32.dll", CharSet:=CharSet.Auto, SetLastError:=True)> _
Private Shared Function WTSOpenServer(ByVal pServerName As String) As
IntPtr
End Function

<DllImport("wtsapi32.dll", CharSet:=CharSet.Auto, SetLastError:=True)> _
Private Shared Sub WTSCloseServer(ByVal hServer As IntPtr)
End Sub

<DllImport("wtsapi32.dll")> _
Private Shared Sub WTSFreeMemory(ByVal pMemory As IntPtr)
End Sub

ByRef ppSessionInfo As IntPtr, _

ByRef pCount As Int32) As Int32
End Function

Friend Function GetSessions(ByVal ServerName As String) As
strSessionsInfo()
Dim ptrOpenedServer As IntPtr
Dim RetVal As strSessionsInfo()
Try
ptrOpenedServer = WTSOpenServer(ServerName)
Dim FRetVal As Int32
Dim ppSessionInfo As IntPtr = IntPtr.Zero
Dim Count As Int32 = 0
Try
FRetVal = WTSEnumerateSessions(ptrOpenedServer, 0, 1,
ppSessionInfo, Count)
If FRetVal <> 0 Then
Dim sessionInfo() As WTS_SESSION_INFO = New
WTS_SESSION_INFO(Count) {}
Dim i As Integer
For i = 0 To Count - 1
sessionInfo(i) =
CType(Marshal.PtrToStructure(ppSessionInfo, GetType(WTS_SESSION_INFO)),
WTS_SESSION_INFO)
Next
WTSFreeMemory(ppSessionInfo)
Dim tmpArr(sessionInfo.GetUpperBound(0)) As

tmpArr(i).SessionID = sessionInfo(i).SessionID
tmpArr(i).StationName =
sessionInfo(i).pWinStationName
tmpArr(i).ConnectionState =
GetConnectionState(sessionInfo(i).State)
Next
ReDim sessionInfo(-1)
RetVal = tmpArr
Else
Throw New ApplicationException("No data retruned")
End If
Catch ex As Exception
Throw New Exception(ex.Message & vbCrLf &
System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.GetLastWin3 2Error)
End Try
Catch ex As Exception
Throw New Exception(ex.Message)
Exit Function
Finally
WTSCloseServer(ptrOpenedServer)
End Try
Return RetVal
End Function

Nikolay,
Can someone have a look?

You never check the return value of WTSOpenServer to verify that you
get a valid handle. Is it possible that the function fails? The docs
say that it returns NULL on failure, which happens to be the same
value as the WTS_CURRENT_SERVER_HANDLE constant used to refer to the
local server.
