TAPI APIs failing

I am trying to use TAPI 2.0 with I/O completion ports. The following code returns LINEERR_OPERATIONUNAVAIL

DWORD dwNumDevices = 0;
DWORD dwAPIVersion = TAPI_CURRENT_VERSION;
LINEINITIALIZEEXPARAMS parms;
parms.dwTotalSize = sizeof(LINEINITIALIZEEXPARAMS);
parms.dwOptions = LINEINITIALIZEEXOPTION_USECOMPLETIONPORT;
parms.dwCompletionKey = 1;
parms.Handles.hCompletionPort = comp;

long rc = lineInitializeEx(&myLineApp,
                     GetModuleHandle(0),
                     0,
                     0,
                     &dwNumDevices,
                     &dwAPIVersion,
                       &parms);

I can successfully use lineInialize, but I'd much rather use   I/O completion ports or event handles than the hidden window method of event notification.

I tried this:
HANDLE hFile = CreateFile( _T( "C:\\T.T" ), GENERIC_WRITE | GENERIC_READ, FILE_SHARE_READ | FILE_SHARE_WRITE, NULL, CREATE_ALWAYS, FILE_FLAG_OVERLAPPED, NULL );

HANDLE comp = ::CreateIoCompletionPort ( hFile, NULL, 1, 0 );
LINEINITIALIZEEXPARAMS lip;
::ZeroMemory( &lip, sizeof( lip ) );
lip.dwTotalSize = sizeof( lip );
lip.dwOptions = LINEINITIALIZEEXOPTION_USECOMPLETIONPORT;
lip.dwCompletionKey = 1;
lip.Handles.hCompletionPort = comp;
pTapi->hLineApp = 0;
pTapi->dwNumDevs = 0;
pTapi->dwAPIVersion = 0x00020000;

LONG err = ::lineInitializeEx( &pTapi->hLineApp, AfxGetApp()->m_hInstance, 0, AfxGetApp()->m_pszAppName, &pTapi->dwNumDevs, &pTapi->dwAPIVersion, &lip );

This worked for me. I'm using VC++ 4.2b. I have UNICODE defined.
I only checked the return value from ::lineInitializeEx(...), nothing more.

I use events myself. Like this:
LINEINITIALIZEEXPARAMS lip;
::ZeroMemory( &lip, sizeof( lip ) );
lip.dwTotalSize = sizeof( lip );
lip.dwOptions = LINEINITIALIZEEXOPTION_USEEVENT;
pTapi->hLineApp = 0;
pTapi->dwNumDevs = 0;
pTapi->dwAPIVersion = 0x00020000;

LONG err = ::lineInitializeEx( &pTapi->hLineApp, AfxGetApp()->m_hInstance, 0, AfxGetApp()->m_pszAppName, &pTapi->dwNumDevs, &pTapi->dwAPIVersion, &lip );
.
Check err
.
open line devices and stuff
.
while ( 1 )
 {
 DWORD dwEvent = WaitForMultipleObjects( 2, pTapi->hEvents, FALSE, INFINITE );
}
etc.
Works great.
Hope this helped
