BUG: GetExplictEntriesFromAcl() May Return Zero ACEs When ACEs Exist

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Win32 Application Programming Interface (API), included with:
    • Microsoft Windows 2000


The GetExplictEntriesFromAcl function succeeds but may return zero access-control entries (ACEs) when ACEs exist.


The low-level security functions should be used to examine the ACEs in an access-control list (ACL). The following functions can be used as substitutes for GetExplictEntriesFromAcl:

  • GetAclInformation
  • GetAce
  • LookupAccountSid


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article.
