[NW RFC SDK] Manually creating metadata description for RFC_SYSTEM_INFO

Hi,

I am trying to manually create the metadata description for the bapi RFC_SYSTEM_INFO (don't ask why). I have a C++ program that creates the parameters needed for the RfcCreateFunctionDesc api call, it then creates and invokes the function all of these return RFC_OK. The problem is that when I try and get the structure RfcGetStructure I get an RFC_INVALID_PARAMETER error. I have included the test code below does anyone have any ideas what I am doing wrong? I have checked the lengths and offsets on the windows system I am running this on.

Thanks in advance,

Simon

void test {

  RFC_ERROR_INFO errorInfo;

  // First create the structure for RFC_SYSTEM_INFO

In there turned out to be a mistake in the structure definition and a typo in the name (RFSCI vs RFCSI)
