When using the CFileDialog to open executable files, by choosing *.lnk (*.pif) files the GetPathName() member function returns the full path of the executable contained in the *.lnk (*.pif) file instead of the path of the *.lnk (*.pif) file. Anybody knows how to get the full path of *.lnk (*.pif) files using CFileDialog?
