Short file name to long file name?
Posted on 1998-11-05
It seems stupid to ask but I can't find a way to convert a short file name to a long file name in Delphi 3 or Win32. There is a function GetFullPathName which doesn't do the job. FindFirst seems to do it but only for the file name so I have to do more work if I want a full short name path converted to a long name path.
Am I missing something? Actually, a 16-bit application is passing the short file name on the command line to my 32-bit application and I want to get the long name right. I'll appreciate any help.
