Determining a network drive UNC name

Using MSVC++5.0, I'm writing a DLL to supply some functions to PowerBuilder that it doesn't have, such a creating and removing directories, and others.

Is there a simple method of determining the  Universal Naming Convention (UNC) of a network drive?  PB's open file dialog box doesn't give the UNC for network drives.  I'm looking for something non-visual if possible.

Thanks, Jody

On Windows NT, you can use WNetGetUniversalName() function. On Windows 95, take a look at

Works great.  Thanks.

Since most of my users will be using Win95 I needed to go with the work around function shown in the MS support article.
