NetShareGetInfo API Call
I hope this is the right forum where I can ask a question about API calls in VB.NET, because I have tried in various other forums and got no responses. I'm a newbie to using this forum and generally only tend to use newsgroups after extensively searching the net for a solution.
I've been trying to get the API NetShareGetInfo running in VB.NET.
Does anyone have any working examples of getting this to work?
I am using the following declaration which I don't even know if it is
correct, but I also need an example of how to use this call this as
well as I have tried Strings, Char Arrays, everything I can think of
but there is always errors.
Declare Auto Function NetShareGetInfo Lib "NETAPI32" ( _
ByRef ServerName As String, _
ByRef NetName As String, _
ByVal Level As Integer, _
ByRef Buffer As IntPtr _
) As Integer
Thanks in advance!
Since there was no replies I have to assume that trying to get .NET to do this API call was a waste of time - and I'll just have to use the VB code that actually works and put a wrapper around it since .NET is incapable of performing this API call.
I've personally never used it. There is a C# example at:
I would think that you could also use either WMI or Directory Services as well.

Thanks Paul - I'll try and translate it!
