The LookupPrivilegeValue function retrieves the locally unique identifier (LUID) used on a specified system to locally represent the specified privilege name.

Declare Function LookupPrivilegeValue Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias "LookupPrivilegeValueA" (ByVal lpSystemName As String, ByVal lpName As String, lpLuid As LARGE_INTEGER) As Long

Operating Systems Supported
Requires Windows NT 3.1 or later; Win9x/ME: Not supported


Parameter Information
· lpSystemName
Points to a null-terminated string specifying the name of the system on which the privilege name is looked up. If a null string is specified, the function attempts to find the privilege name on the local system.

· lpName
Points to a null-terminated string that specifies the name of the privilege, as defined in the WINNT.H header file. For example, this parameter could specify the constant SE_SECURITY_NAME, or its corresponding string, “SeSecurityPrivilege”.

· lpLuid
Points to a variable that receives the locally unique identifier by which the privilege is known on the system specified by the lpSystemName parameter.

Return Values
If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
