I like to have a routine that let me convert a mapped network drive to its UNC name
i.e.: S:\public\userdir to \\domain\Servername\public\userdir. There is a function (WNETGETUNIVERSALNAME) with windows, but this function is not supported on Win-95

I think you should give the ScUNCFromLocalPath function a try. WNetGetUniversalName is only supported on WindowsNT platforms.

Maybe the ScUNCFromLocalPath function will work on Windows9x platforms. Search on www.msdn.microsoft.com for more information about this function.

WNetGetConnection should be the right API for you.

In the Delphi unit SysUtils there is a rutine ExpandUNCFileName that does the trick. Also under Win95.
