PostPosted: Visual C++ General, GetSystemFirmwareTable() not working. Top

hi,

I am trying to use GetSystemFirmwareTable() to read acpi data but my program says:

error C2065: 'GetSystemFirmwareTable' : undeclared identifier

is there anything that i need to install before using the function

my aim is to read acpi information. is there any class for reading acpi data, as there is MSSMBios_RawSMBiosTables for reading SMBIOS data

My system is acpi compliant ( WinXP-SP2)

Please help.

( I posted the question on newsgrp, but recvd no answer)

Thanks in advance,

Manasi.

'GetSystemFirmwareTable' is not available on XP -SP2, this API was introduced on XP 64, Vista, W2K3 R2 and Longhorn.
Take a look at the API description in Windows SDK docs.
