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?

Specify the OFN_NODEREFERENCELINKS flag when creating the dialog box.

OFN_NODEREFERENCELINKS
 Directs the dialog box to return the path and filename of the selected shortcut (.LNK) file. If this value is not given, the dialog box returns the path and filename of the file referenced by the shortcut
