Function Reference


Creates a new primary or impersonation access token that duplicates an existing token

#include <WinAPIProc.au3>
_WinAPI_DuplicateTokenEx ( $hToken, $iAccess, $iLevel [, $iType = 1 [, $tSecurity = 0]] )


$hToken A handle to an access token opened with $TOKEN_DUPLICATE access.
$iAccess The requested access rights for the new token. To request the same access rights as the existing token, specify zero.
To request all access rights that are valid for the caller, specify the $TOKEN_ALL_ACCESS access.
$iLevel The security impersonation levels.
$iType [optional] The token type.
$tSecurity [optional] $tagSECURITY_ATTRIBUTES structure that specifies a security descriptor for the new token and determines whether child processes can inherit the token.
If this parameter is 0 (Default), the token gets a default security descriptor and the handle cannot be inherited.
If the security descriptor contains a system access control list, the token gets $ACCESS_SYSTEM_SECURITY access right, even if it was not requested.

Return Value

Success: The handle to the new token.
Failure: 0, call _WinAPI_GetLastError() to get extended error information.


When you have finished using the new token, call the _WinAPI_CloseHandle() function to close the token handle.
