How do i solve this problem?
I need to extract the leftmost 5 characters of a CString.

CString szSvPath("D:\\AB\\CDE\\F.EXE") ;
CString szPath ;
szPath = szSvPath.Left[5] ;

error C2109: subscript requires array or pointer type
error C2679: binary '=' : no operator defined which takes a right-hand operand of type 'class CString (CString::*)(int)const ' (or there is no acceptable conversion)
Error executing cl.exe.

Just use () instead of []:

CString szSvPath("D:\\AB\\CDE\\F.EXE") ;
CString szPath ;
szPath = szSvPath.Left(5) ;
