Using SfcIsFileProtected via P/Invoke

Here is my code.  For simplicity, I trimmed it down to the part I'm having trouble with:

[DllImport("sfc.dll")]
static extern bool SfcIsFileProtected(int handle, string path);

if (!SfcIsFileProtected(0, fullPathOfFile))
{
    MessageBox.Show( "not protected");
}

Even if a file IS a protected file, it tells me it isn't.  What am I doing wrong?  I'm testing it on files I know are protected, because Windows restores them if I delete them.

Thanks,

Tom
