Introduction

Same story - I need it for the one of my installers.

Briefly: In my case I needed to tell the user that magic of Windows Firewall is present and with the users consent to get rid of it.

Support

Supported platforms are: >= WinXP SP2 (with the super built-in firewall:))

DLL Functions

Firewall-Disabler::QueryFirewall

Looks for firewall presence.

return:

1 - the firewall is enabled
0 - the firewall is disabled
Firewall-Disabler::EnableFirewall

Put the spell on the user - enable the Windows Firewall.

return:

1 - success (if you can call this action a success)
0 - failure (good for you!)
Firewall-Disabler::DisableFirewall

Does the best thing that can be done for the user... "And they shall be saved!":)

return:

1 - SUCCESS!!! YES!!!
0 - you cannot brake the spell... you are cursed!:))



Usage

First of all, does not matter where you use it. Ofcourse, the routines must be called inside of a Section/Function scope.

Firewall-Disabler::DisableFirewall
