static extern uint HttpInitialize(
     HTTPAPI_VERSION Version,
     uint Flags,
     IntPtr pReserved);

VB Signature:

<DllImport("httpapi.dll", SetLastError := True)> _
Private Shared Function HttpInitialize(ByVal Version As HTTPAPI_VERSION, ByVal Flags As UInteger, ByVal pReserved As IntPtr) As UInteger
End Function

User-Defined Types:

Notes:

None.

Tips & Tricks:

Please add some!

Sample Code:

    uint retVal = (uint) ErrorCodes.NOERROR;

    retVal = HttpApi.HttpInitialize(HttpApi.HTTPAPI_VERSION, HttpApi.HTTP_INITIALIZE_CONFIG, IntPtr.Zero);
    if ((uint) ErrorCodes.NOERROR == retVal)
    {
    // Do some work...

    HttpApi.HttpTerminate(HttpApi.HTTP_INITIALIZE_CONFIG, IntPtr.Zero);
    }
