GetSystemFirmwareTable() not working.

    Question

  • 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.
