Firewall Service API

Updated: December 16, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Windows can detect when an application attempts to use an obsolete application programming interface (API) to disable the firewall.

When appropriate auditing events are enabled (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=92666), Windows reports when applications attempt to use obsolete API calls.
