500 points Win2000 NTFS question

I give 500 points for this question:

I need to read a Win2000 encrypted file and then write its entire contents to an other file using ReadEncryptedFileRaw/WriteEncryptedFileRaw APIs from advapi.dll

These APIs seem not to work properly. This is the code I use:


BYTE      g_Buf[10000];
DWORD       g_BufLen;
void   *d_pv;


DWORD RRead(PBYTE pbData, PVOID pvCallbackContext, ULONG ulLength)
{
      memcpy(g_Buf, pbData, ulLength);
      g_BufLen = ulLength;

      return 0;
}


DWORD WWrite(PBYTE pbData, PVOID pvCallbackContext, PULONG ulLength)
{
      memcpy(pbData, g_Buf, g_BufLen);
      *ulLength = g_BufLen;

      return 0;
}


OpenEncryptedFileRaw("c:\\Test.txt", 0, &g_pv);
ReadEncryptedFileRaw((PFE_EXPORT_FUNC)RRead, NULL, g_pv);
CloseEncryptedFileRaw(g_pv);

OpenEncryptedFileRaw("c:\\TestCpy.txt", CREATE_FOR_IMPORT, &g_pv);
WriteEncryptedFileRaw((PFE_IMPORT_FUNC)WWrite, NULL, g_pv);
CloseEncryptedFileRaw(g_pv);

What is wrong with this code?

For 500 points + grade A, I'll answer this question.
But you have to increase the points first.

What is "grade A" and how many points do you want?

The title of your question is "500 points Win2000 NTFS question".
But the actual price is ZERO.
So, increase the actual price to 500 points, and I'll answer your question.

Go ahead...

However, I won't accept the answer if these APIs don't work just because of a bug in Windows files (advapi.dll or somewhere else). In this case please don't post the "answer", just use "comments" so I could delete this question later and not to loose the points.

Don't worry, it works fine...

#include <windows.h>
#include <iostream.h>

//----------------------------
// There is a bug in the winbase.h, at least
// in my Platform SDK RC2.
// Callback functions must be defined as WINAPI:
//
// DWORD (WINAPI *PFE_EXPORT_FUNC)(...)
// DWORD (WINAPI *PFE_IMPORT_FUNC)(...)
//
//----------------------------


// The buffer must be large enough.
BYTE g_Buf[1024*1024*10];
DWORD g_BufLen=0,written=0;
PVOID pContext;

//
// Callbacks must be defined with WINAPI
//
DWORD WINAPI RRead(PBYTE pbData, PVOID /*pvCallbackContext*/, ULONG ulLength)
{
   cout<<"Read callback, len="<<ulLength<<endl;
   memcpy(g_Buf+g_BufLen,pbData,ulLength);
   g_BufLen+=ulLength;    
   return ERROR_SUCCESS;
}


DWORD WINAPI WWrite(PBYTE pbData,PVOID /*pvCallbackContext*/, PULONG ulLength)
{
   cout<<"Write callback, len="<<*ulLength;
   if(*ulLength>g_BufLen) *ulLength=g_BufLen;
   cout<<", used="<<*ulLength<<endl;
   memcpy(pbData,g_Buf+written,*ulLength);
   written+=*ulLength;
   g_BufLen-=*ulLength;
   return ERROR_SUCCESS;
}

void main()
{

   DWORD r;

   r=OpenEncryptedFileRaw("d:\\aa", 0, &pContext);
   cout<<"Open result="<<r<<' '<<GetLastError()<<endl;
   r=ReadEncryptedFileRaw((PFE_EXPORT_FUNC)RRead,0,pContext);
   cout<<"Read result="<<r<<' '<<GetLastError()<<endl;
   cout<<"Buf len="<<g_BufLen<<endl;
   CloseEncryptedFileRaw(pContext);
   cout<<"Closed "<<endl<<endl;

   r=OpenEncryptedFileRaw("d:\\aa2", CREATE_FOR_IMPORT, &pContext);
   cout<<"Open result="<<r<<' '<<GetLastError()<<endl;
   r=WriteEncryptedFileRaw((PFE_IMPORT_FUNC)WWrite,0,pContext);

Nick,

that is exactly what I suspected: a bug in Windows files. I just couldn'd find where...
This "WINAPI" declaration makes whole the difference. Anyway, I accept your answer. Thanks.

Also you incorrectly used callback functions...

My callback functions were used for a "single callback" call only (really small file). The whole idea is those WINAPI. Whithout WINAPI callback functions get called only one time.
