CreateProcess fails with GetLastError=0
Posted on 1997-09-03
I call CreateProcess with the lpEnvironment parameter pointing to a buffer containing a lot of environment variables (see below) and the result is FALSE, with GetLastError = 0.
Then I recall CreateProcess, but with lpEnvironment = NULL, and I get the same results.
As the Winexec or ShellExececute functions returns 0 if the OS is out of memory or resources, I tried to reboot my machine (even if I run NT !!), but the CreateProcess behaviour keeps the same.
What's happening? Any comments or suggestions welcome.
my buffer format for the lpEnvironment: 'envVar1=value1§envVar2=value2§...envVarX=valueX§§', where the §§ stands for a zero byte)
