get_handle_creator_process_name Method

Retrieves the name of the process that opened the specified file handle.


def get_handle_creator_process_name(handle_info: int) -> str: ...


This method can be called within certain events to retrieve the name of the process that opened the file handle specified by HandleInfo. The value to pass for HandleInfo should be obtained directly from the event. If the query fails, this method returns empty string.

Applications cannot use this method to retrieve information about remote processes accessing virtual drives shared on the network. Windows does not provide such information due to the nature of remote access.

Note: This method can only be called within events that expose a HandleInfo parameter, and must be called in the same thread that the event was originally fired on.
