Get correct 32-bit folder (RPC over named pipes) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Sorry for incompetence.
    There are many specifications on this page
    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj712081.aspx


    I'm interested in RPC protocol sequences, such as "RPC over named pipes".In particular, I need to find out if there are any tools like SHGetKnownFolderPath or SHGetFolderPath, to get 32-bit WOW folders (example:
    x64 machine - C: \ Program Files (x86) and C: \ Windows \ SysWOW64
    x32 machine - C: \ Program Files and C: \ Windows \ system32
    )

    The RPC command should return the correct 32-bit folder, depending on the system's (64 bit or 32 bit).Is It possible?
    Thank you.

  • Hi,
    This forum handles requests related to Open Specifications documentation issues. The Open Specifications can be found at: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc203350.aspx.
    Your question does not appear to be related to the Open Specifications documentation set.
    I suggest you try the following forum to get assistance:

    Windows 32 API experts can explain you the purpose of those API and whether they are meant for remote operations or not.
    Besides, we have [MS-RPCE] "2.1.1.2 SMB (NCACN_NP)" which specifies RPC directly over SMB. But I don't think a transport protocol will provide the answer you are looking for.
