Changes in the Windows 10 SDK compared to Windows 8.1 (Part One)

May 15, 2015 2 comments

What follows is a review of the Windows 10 Headers files compared to Windows 8.1. By doing this comparison we should be able to highlight some of the key features and changes coming in Windows 10 for developers.

Please note that this review is based on the VS 2015 Release Candidate which was released at Build 2015 which took place from April 29th to May 1st. and as such you might expect some further changes at RTM time.

The new Windows 10 header files end up getting installed into c:\program files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Include by default. Underneath this directory is two folders, one called “10.0.10056.0” and “10.0.10069.0”. The “10.0.10056.0” only includes just an “ucrt” folder which includes the new Universal C Runtime header files while the “10.0.10069.0” contain a full SDK install.  I am not sure why there is two “10.0.*” folders. The “10056” and “10069” seem to correspond to the build number of Windows 10. This review will concentrate on the “10.0.10069.0” which contain four folders, namely “shared”, “ucrt”, “um” and “winrt”.  As mentioned already the “ucrt” folder contains the new Universal CRT header files. The “winrt” folder contains the WinRT header files. Finally the “shared” and “um” folders contains what you would consider the traditional Windows SDK header files. Part one of this review will concentrate on the “shared” folder which contains the defines which are shared between Kernel mode and User mode. The upcoming second part of this blog post will look at the “um” folder differences which contain the user mode header files. I expect the second part will be much bigger as there are just under 2000 files in the “um” directory compared to just 246 in the “shared” directory as well as the fact you would expect that a lot of the new functionality will be visible as user mode APIs.

Ok, let’s dive into the changes:

  • shared\ntddkbd.h: New IOCTL_KEYBOARD_QUERY_EXTENDED_ATTRIBUTES & KEY_RIM_VKEY defines and KEYBOARD_EXTENDED_ATTRIBUTES structure.
  • shared\ntddndis.h: New defines to support NDIS v6.50 functionality included with Windows 10
  • shared\ntddscsi.h: various new defines and structs for SCSI drivers
  • shared\ntddser.h: New defines for USB serial ports

  • shared\ntdef.h: References to ARM64, New OBJ_IGNORE_IMPERSONATED_DEVICEMAP define. The following PRODUCT_* defines have been added: PRODUCT_NANO_SERVER, PRODUCT_CONNECTED_CAR, PRODUCT_INDUSTRY_HANDHELD, PRODUCT_PPI_PRO, PRODUCT_ARM64_SERVER, PRODUCT_EDUCATION, PRODUCT_EDUCATION_N, PRODUCT_IOTUAP, PRODUCT_CLOUD_HOST_INFRASTRUCTURE_SERVER, PRODUCT_ENTERPRISE_S, PRODUCT_ENTERPRISE_S_N, PRODUCT_PROFESSIONAL_S, PRODUCT_PROFESSIONAL_S_N, PRODUCT_ENTERPRISE_S_EVALUATION, PRODUCT_ENTERPRISE_S_N_EVALUATION. These are all very interesting values and in particular PRODUCT_ARM64_SERVER which indicates most clearly that Microsoft will be announcing some type of Windows Server product which will be targeting the upcoming ARM64 architecture. Also the PRODUCT_IOTUAP probably indicates the Windows 10 IoT release. I’m not sure what the “_S” values refer to. The PRODUCT_NANO_SERVER refers to the stripped down version of Windows Server which was announced at Build 2015. I will be updating my DtWinVer code in the next few weeks to report these values as well as the recently announced versions of Windows 10.
  • shared\ntiologic.h: New Win32 Error code
  • shared\ntstatus.h: Various new Win32 Facility codes and error codes. Mention of error codes for Remote TPM,

  • shared\rpcdce.h: New RPC_C_AUTHN_CLOUD_AP define, New RpcImpersonateClientContainer and RpcRevertContainerImpersonation functions.
  • shared\rpcdcep.h: New RPCFLG_WINRT_REMOTE_ASYNC & RPC_C_OPT_PRIVATE_DO_NOT_DISTURB defines, new _RpcFreeSystemHandle & I_RpcUninitializeNdrOle functions.

  • shared\winapifamily.h: A new concept of WINAPI_PARTITIONS has been added to Windows 10. Taken from the comment in this header file: In Windows 10, WINAPI_PARTITIONs will be used to add additional device specific APIs to a particular WINAPI_FAMILY.  For example, when writing Windows Universal apps, specifying WINAPI_FAMILY_APP will hide phone APIs from compilation.  However, specifying WINAPI_PARTITION_PHONE_APP=1 additionally, will unhide any API hidden behind the partition, to the compiler. Two new FAMILY defines have been introduced, they are: WINAPI_FAMILY_SYSTEM and WINAPI_FAMILY_SERVER. The values probably map to the concept of Windows Nano Server.
  • shared\winbio.h: New error codes for Windows Biometrics. These are part of the new face detection authentication mechanisms in Windows 10. Interestingly this header file makes reference to “NTDDI_WIN9”. This is probably the case of one group in Microsoft who are working on the new biometrics support in Windows 10 not quite being in sync with the development files being used by other groups in Windows 10. I expect this to be fixed for RTM.
  • shared\winbio_types.h:  New defines for Windows Biometrics. Areas covered include Facial, Voice, Fingerprint, Iris, Retina, Hand Geometry, Signature, Lip, Thermal Face and Hand, Gait, Scent, DNA, Ear Shape, Finger, Palm Print, Vein And Foot Print. Again this file references “NTDDI_WIN9”
  • shared\windot11.h: New defines for DOT11_*, New elements in DOT11_EXTSTA_ATTRIBUTE struct, New WFD structs.
  • shared\winerror.h: New FACILITY_* defines, various new Win32 error codes. There is a new set of error codes for SQLite. It takes up 740 lines in this header file. It looks like SQLite will now be shipped with Windows 10!
  • shared\winpackagefamilty.h: New header file which implements the new Partitions concept for Windows 10 APIs.
  • shared\winsmcrd.h: New IOCTL_SMARTCARD_GET_FEATURE_REQUEST, SCARD_T1_EPILOGUE_LENGTH, SCARD_T1_EPILOGUE_LENGTH_LRC & SCARD_READER_CONTACTLESS defines. It looks like some updates have been done for Smart Cards in Windows 10. I plan to update my SCardWrappers to support these new features in the near future.
  • shared\wlantypes.h: New defines for DOT11_*.
  • shared\ws2ipdef.h: New IP_GET_IFLIST, IPV6_GET_IFLIST & TCP_MAXRTMS defines.

Hopefully I should get around to Part two of this blog post in the next few weeks. Happy coding.

A Comprehensive comparison of the MFC & ATL changes in VS 2015 RC compared to Visual Studio 2013 Update 4 (Part 2)

May 13, 2015 Comments off

This is the second part of a two part blog post which compares MFC and ATL in VS 2015 RC with those in Visual Studio 2013. The first part of this blog post covered the changes in the header files. This follow-up blog post will cover the differences in the source code modules.

Please note that this review is based on the VS 2015 Release Candidate which was released at Build 2015 which took place from April 29th to May 1st. and as such you might expect some further changes at RTM time.

As ATL is mostly a header only library you would expect almost all of the differences to be in the MFC “.cpp” source code files.

Ok, let’s dive into the changes:

  • atl\atls\atlwinverapi.cpp
    • Throughout: Most of the code which existing in this module has been migrated to the header file atlwinverapi.h
  • mfc\amd64\inetcall_.s
    • Line 2: Minor update to a copyright message in a comment.
  • mfc\amd64\olecall_.s
    • Line 2: Minor update to a copyright message in a comment.

Just to let everyone know that v1.16 of CServerMailslot and CClientMailslot has been released. Updates for this version include:

  • Updated copyright details.
  • Updated the project settings to more modern defaults
  • Removed all unnecessary TRACE calls
  • Made the classes into a header only implementation
  • Updated the code to clean compile on VC 2013
  • Reworked the CServerMailslot::Open and CClientMailslot::Open to provide the full mailslot name as its first parameter. This allows the class to avoid the use of CString
  • Addition of a CServerMailslot::GetInfo method which encapsulates GetMailslotInfo.
  • Removed the CServerMailslot::MessageWaiting, MessageCount, SizeOfWaitingMessage, MaximumMessageSize, GetCreationTime, GetLastAccessTime & GetLastWriteTime methods

A Comprehensive comparison of the MFC & ATL changes in VS 2015 RC compared to Visual Studio 2013 Update 4 (Part 1)

May 7, 2015 7 comments

As my area of expertise is in libraries rather than new language features, I thought it would be useful to see what has been changed in MFC and ATL in Visual Studio 2015. If you want to review what’s new in the C++ language in VS 2015, please take a look at https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/news/vs2015-vs.aspx. Please note that this review is based on the VS 2015 Release Candidate which was released at Build 2015 which took place from April 29th to May 1st. and as such you might expect some further changes at RTM time.

  • afx.h
    • Line 44: The #error line has been updated to mention that MFC is supported on ARM64 platforms. What I have noticed is in VC 2015 you can now compile native mode ARM binaries out of the box without getting the “error MSB8022: Compiling Desktop applications for the ARM platform is not supported. “ compiler error which you previously got in VC 2013. This in part is the enabling work to support Windows IoT and other upcoming 64 bit ARM processors which MFC looks like will be targeting. I was able to successfully compile my DtWinVer code for ARM in VS 2015 with relatively little changes (The compiler flag /ZI does not seem to be supported on ARM yet). Any migrated projects also get a new “_ARM_WINAPI_PARTITION_DESKTOP_SDK_AVAILABLE” pre-processor value. Here’s a screen capture of it running taken from my Windows 10 VM which connected to the Pi using PowerShell and Windows Remote Management:

    DtWinVer on Raspberry Pi 2

    • I will be officially updating DtWinVer to support Visual Studio 2015, ARM and Windows IoT in the next few weeks. These changes make for some very interesting developments and times ahead for Microsoft desktop development on non x86/x64 chips.
    • Line 327: AfxAssertFailedLine has been made inline and looks like it has a bug fix around WM_QUIT handling
    • Multiple locations: TRACE calls have been updated to use a %Ts format specifier instead of %s. This looks like an interesting and breaking change for client code which uses printf, CString::Format functionality and which support Unicode. It turns out that %s in VC 2015 will map to narrow string (char*) always unless you define _CRT_STDIO_LEGACY_WIDE_SPECIFIERS. Check out http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10000723/visual-studio-swprintf-is-making-all-my-s-formatters-want-wchar-t-instead-of for the issue. It looks like this change is going to be the most upsetting change to migrate your existing MFC code to VS 2015.
    • Line 1476: AfxAllocMemoryDebug has been decorated with a __declspec(allocator) value. This looks like part of the new Memory Diagnostics tools in VC 2015. Check out http://blogs.msdn.com/b/vcblog/archive/2014/06/04/native-memory-diagnostic-tools-for-visual-studio-14-ctp1.aspx
  • Afxanimationhelper.h
    • Line 88: The declaration of IID_IUnknown has been fixed.
  • afxbasepane.h
    • Line 41 and 52: Removal of unnecessary C style enum declarations. This and similar changes were done probably from the static code analysis fixes suggested by a fellow C++ MVP: Andrey Karpov and his commercial product PVS-Studio
  • afxbasetabctrl.h
    • Throughout: Inclusion of new header file and new code to support active accessibility in CMFCBaseTabCtrl
  • afxcmn.h
    • Line 743 & 2151: Fixes to SAL annotation in CTreeCtrl::SetImageList & CReBarCtrl::SetImageList
  • afxcontrolbarutil.h

    • Line 34: Suppression of compiler error C4091 while including shlobj.h
  • afxdlgs.h
    • Line 489: CFileDialog::m_szFileTitle is now allocated using MAX_FNAME rather than the value 64
    • Line 1082-1083: Addition of two new virtual functions CFileDialog::IsLeftNavigationPane and CFIleDialog::CanAddPageToDynamicLaout. This is part of the support for the new dynamic dialog layout feature described later
    • Line 1091: Addition of a CSize m_SizeMin member variable
    • Line 1101: Addition of a OnGetMinMaxInfo message handler
  • afxeditbrowsectrl.h
    • Line 57 & 67: New parameter to the CMFCEditBrowseCtrl::EnableFileBrowseButton which gets stored in the m_dwFileDialogFlags member variable already discussed. This allows the flags passed to CFileDialog to be customized for CMFCEditBrowseCtrl. For an alternative implementation which already supports this check out http://www.naughter.com/ddxgetfile.html
  • afxext.h
    • Line 806 and 812: A new IsIntDlgCompleted method and associated m_bInitDlgCompleted member variable in CFormView. This is probably a bug fix to ensure OnInitialUpdate only fires once. This issue affected the CDialog class in previous versions of MFC.
  • afxglobals.h
    • Line 34: Removal of unnecessary C style enum declarations
    • Line 317: Addition of a new ResetCheckCompositionFlag method to AFX_GLOBAL_DATA struct

I plan to produce a follow-up blog post where I post the details of the MFC source code diff of VS 2015 compared to VS 2013. I would expect most of the changes to be similar to the differences as described above in the corresponding header files but I would expect to find a few unrelated bug fixes also. I might also do a blog post on the new dynamic dialog mechanism if people are interested also.

Hopefully this review was useful for those developers thinking of migrating their large ATL / MFC code base to the latest version of Visual Studio. Happy coding.

CPDH v1.14

May 4, 2015 Comments off

Just to let everyone know that v1.14 of CPdh has been released. Updates for this version include:

  • Updated the code to clean compile on VC 2013
  • Updated copyright details
  • Reworked the classes to optionally compile without MFC. By default the classes now use STL classes and idioms but if you define CPDH_MFC_EXTENSIONS the classes will revert back to the MFC behaviour.
  • Added SAL annotations to all the code
  • Reworked CPdhDataSource::Update to take a LPCTSTR parameter
  • Verified there has been no further additions to PDH from the Windows 8.1 SDK
  • Added a new preprocessor macro value of “CPDH_NO_DYNLINK” to control inclusion of “cpdhimpl.h” in cpdh.cpp.
