Hi,

I am writing a VC5 application and I need to get the fully qualified network path of a drive on the machine from which I am runnning my application.
So if my drive D: is shared as DRIVE_D and my computer is known  to the network as MY_COMPUTER, I'd like to programatically convert drive d: to \\MY_COMPUTER\DRIVE_D

I could not find any Windows 95 API to do that.

Thanks for your help.
Ralph.

Have you tried ::WNetGetUniversalName() function? I am not sure if it works in this case.

Miscrosoft has reported that WNetGetUniversalName fails under Windows 95. I found however some sample code provided by Microsoft that performs the same functionality.
Thanks.
