I noticed that I didnt call MAPIInit() , this is obvious
but my question is harder

Hello there !
I'm working on VC++ 6.0 on a Windows 2000 machine.
I'm trying to get IStream interface for a file, and I found the
function OpenStreamOnFile , which is part of the MAPI.

I'm calling this function:

LPSTREAM pStreamFile;
               
HRESULT     hr = OpenStreamOnFile (MAPIAllocateBuffer, MAPIFreeBuffer,STGM_READ, "C:\\testfile", NULL, &pStreamFile);

The file "testfile" exists.

The functio fails with return code hr = 0x8004010f.

Does anyway has any idea why the function is failing ?

please help - i have no idea !

thanks , Ron

PLEASE, DO NOT EDIT THE QUESTION!

Obviously, my reply solved your initial Q...

This error code is

MAPI_E_NOT_FOUND 0x8004010f

The docs on 'OpenStreamOnFile()' state:

MAPI_E_NOT_FOUND
The designated file does not exist.

Are you sure the file you want to open is there?

Please note that editing a Q brings all comments out of context - DO NOT DO THAT unless it is absolutely necessary (and it wasn't necessary here)...

ronibr, please edit your question.  Replace this:

I noticed that I didnt call MAPIInit() , this is obvious
but my question is harder

with this:

jkr has noticed that I forgot to call MAPIInit().  This is now obvious, though I didn't have a clue until it just magically came to me in a dream at 12:25PM PST.  I think that I will now abandon this question like I have often done in the past.

That will be much more truthful, don't you agree?
