I am trying to recompile a C++ program (its a very simple program with no GUI) to run in dos - which I thought would be easy but I've hit against SystemFunction027 and SystemFunction025 in ADVAPI32.DLL and I've no Idea what these functions do.  I've tried google with no success.

I have a suspicion they are something to do with encryption (which my program does use)

Does anyone out there know what they do?

Thanks in advance

In my XP Pro SP1, ADVAPI32.DLL version 5.1.2600.1106:

Function 25 is AddAuditAccessAce:
(The AddAuditAccessAce function adds a system-audit access control entry (ACE) to a system access control list (ACL). The access of a specified security identifier (SID) is audited.  To control whether the new ACE can be inherited by child objects, use the AddAuditAccessAceEx function)
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/secauthz/security/addauditaccessace.asp?frame=true

Function 27 is AddAuditAccessObjectAce:
(The AddAuditAccessObjectAce function adds a system-audit access control entry (ACE) to the end of a system access control list (SACL). The new ACE can audit access to an object, or to a property set or property on an object. You can also use AddAuditAccessObjectAce to add an ACE that only a specified type of child object can inherit)
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/secauthz/security/addauditaccessobjectace.asp?frame=true

Function 0x25 is BuildExplicitAccessWithNameA:
(The BuildExplicitAccessWithName function initializes an EXPLICIT_ACCESS structure with data specified by the caller. The trustee is identified by a name string)
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/secauthz/security/buildexplicitaccesswithname.asp?frame=true

Function 0x27 is BuildImpersonateExplicitAccessWithNameA:
(Obsolete. Do not use.)
