ldap api ldap_search_s() finished, return code is 0x0 windows server 2008

I have heard that the LDPAPISearch function returns a code for successful connection.

The Windows Server 2008 file system is not the same as that of Windows Vista or Windows 7. In Windows Server 2008 files can be written directly to the file system without any additional calls to LDPAPI. However, the file system is not the same as that of Windows XP or Windows 2003.

To get an idea of how a file system works in Windows Server 2008, check out the “File System” video on YouTube. It’s a bit dated and over-saturated, but you get the idea.

The difference between Windows Server 2008 and Vista was that a Vista file system is written to instead of being read from. This makes a lot more sense when you look at the file system on the laptop in the video, but still.

So when the file system on Windows Server 2008 tries to execute the LDPAPI.dll function, it fails, and returns 0x0. We can see that this function is trying to access the file system and is failing because Windows Server 2008 does not have a file system implemented in its file system driver.

So, as it turns out, it makes more sense that the file system on Windows XP is read from than that it is written to. If you look at the Windows Server 2008 file system driver, you’ll see that it is written to. On Windows Server 2008, LDPAPI.dll is a Windows XP file system function. This is an interesting change from Vista where LDPAPI.dll is a Windows Vista file system function.

Windows Vista is good, but why should it be better? Most people don’t know because they are not very good at this. And the first thing that happens to Windows XP is that the file system functions on Windows XP have been switched to Windows Vista. The Windows Vista file system functions on Windows XP are in fact the Windows Vista file system functions.dll files.

The point is that because it is a Windows XP file system function, ldap_search_s() will not work on Windows Vista. This is because the function that the Windows Vista file system functions were running on Windows XP is now in Windows Vista. In fact, if you look at the code, it looks as though ldap_search_s() has been switched to ldap_search_s2() in Windows Vista. That’s not good news.

I can imagine that it would be very very very bad news. It’s very possible that you may have to install the latest version of ldap_search_s from the Microsoft download center, or upgrade to Windows Vista. If you’ve installed the Microsoft Windows Vista file system functions on Windows XP, ldap_search_s should not work on Windows Vista, and you should consider upgrading to Windows Vista.
