How can I write a program to emulate NET SHARE?

The Windows NT NET SHARE command displays a list of shares on the current system including the admin shares (C$, etc).  How can I get those values from a program (other than parsing the output of NET SHARE)?  I know about WNetOpenEnum and the related routines but I can't find a way to get the admin shares from that interface.  I don't care about getting the information remotely, it is acceptable to be on a machine to run the code.

Sample code would be nice, but just pointers to the routine names would be useful.

You have two approaches: NetShareEnum(), which is problematic to use because the implementation differs between Win95 and NT (Use NULL as the server name to enumerate shares on the local computer); or WNetEnumResource(), which wont enumerate hidden or administrative shares.

As I mentioned, WNetOpenEnum isn't useful since it doesn't get the admin shares so most of the pointers were useless.  The last pointer was helpful as it gave me a working code using NetShareEnum.
