This function is obsolete and is only supported for backward compatibility with 16-bit Windows. For 32-bit Windows applications, it is not necessary to free the resources loaded using LoadResource. If used on 32 or 64-bit Windows systems, this function will return FALSE.
Decrements (decreases by one) the reference count of a loaded resource. When the reference count reaches zero, the memory occupied by the resource is freed.
BOOL WINAPI FreeResource( _In_ HGLOBAL hglbResource );
- hglbResource [in]
- Type: HGLOBAL
- A handle of the resource. It is assumed that hglbResource was created by LoadResource.
If the function succeeds, the return value is zero.
If the function fails, the return value is nonzero, which indicates that the resource has not been freed.
