I wanted to try out the SimpleMounter sample (using C++) provided in SFS OS edition. Because a storage file is required to try it out, I then used SFS App edition to create a storage file.

When I run the Storages sample, the StorageCreate method always returns -34. I tried using both static and debug libraries. But the result is the same.

Kindly help!

It seems the registration key is incorrect.

The Storages sample in SFS App edition does not have any line of code asking for registration key.
Even then, I used StorageSetRegistrationKey(key) in the sample code. I have got a valid key. StorageSetRegistrationKey returns 0. But the StorageCreate method still returns error code (now 32).

Kindly help!

The code 32 is ERROR_SHARING_VIOLATION ("The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process"). Check if the storage-file isn't opened by another process during the StorageCreate call.
