All functions in the API-MS-Win-Service-Management-L2-1-0 set are documented
exports from ADVAPI32:
The implementations in ADVAPI32 version 6.1 and higher are just stubs which transfer
the handling to wherever the schema redirects the API Set.
Non-trivial implementations of all functions in this API Set are exported from
SECHOST version 6.1 and higher.
The Windows 7 schema redirects this API Set to SECHOST. Thus:
- high-level executables, which do not use the API Set, continue to import these
functions from ADVAPI32;
- low-level executables have their imports from the API Set redirected to SECHOST;
- as a particular case of the preceding, the stub implementations in ADVAPI32
import from underlying implementations in SECHOST.
