If it is not documented....

Ivan just contacted me with the following message:


I've found a bug in a native NT API, specifically NtQueryDirectoryObject, who should I report it to?

The report a bug link on microsoft.com just gives a phone number and I don't want to pay an intercontinental phone call.


Of course, NtQueryDirectoryObject is not a documented function in either the SDK or the DDK, so it is hard to know how one could report a bug against it. For all one knows, there could be a comment that describes the usage limitations that could cover the very scenario causing a bug, right? :-)

But you can describe the bug right here in a comment, and I can forward the link to someone. Genuine bugs are obviously always a concern, though I would always suggest trying to avoid calling these functions directly....

you may find documentation here: http://undocumented.ntinternals.net/UserMode/Undocumented%20Functions/NT%20Objects/DirectoryObject/NtQueryDirectoryObject.html

Hi Leopold,

This is not what I would call documentation that Microsoft supports. :-)
