Is it possible to determine the full pathname of a dll from the dll itself when it is loaded?

I'm sure it is.

Look at the documentation for GetModuleFileName().

Also, you can look at listdlls.exe from www.ntinternals.com for how to get that from outside the process. (look at the exports).

We were using GetModulefilename() but unfortunately we were passing the wrong HMODULE (dllname.hmodule) rather than a call to GetModuleHandle().

An example of its use and where we can get a valid HMODULE from would have been useful.
