   WIN32_FIND_DATA find_data;
    CString sSearchString = _T("C:\\SomeDirectory\\*.*");  // set here your search string
   
    HANDLE hFindFileHandle = FindFirstFile(
        sSearchString,
        &find_data);
   
   
    if ( hFindFileHandle == INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE )
    {
        return;
    }
   
    while ( TRUE )
    {
        if ( ! (find_data.dwFileAttributes & FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DIRECTORY) )   // not directory
        {
            // Handle file here. It's name (without path) is in find_data.cFileName
        }
       
        // next file
        if ( ! FindNextFile(hFindFileHandle, &find_data) )
