That's not an acceptable way of figuring things out.

If you have an application that uses this, you can look at what the app
is doing, and try to reproduce that behavior in a test case; but the
Microsoft DLLs have to be treated as black boxes. You can call public
APIs and see what they return, but you can't look inside the box. In
particular, disassembling the code is strictly forbidden. I'm afraid
this means I can no longer accept any patches of yours implementing this
