How to retain long file names in Win98 with CComboBox::Dir ?

Hi experts,

I have a Ccombo Box which when pulled down will show the filenames with .txt extension. I use the following instructions and they work well on Win2000 and WinXP. However, running on Win98SE, I see the filenames become 8.3 format. I am using Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0.

m_cFileNames.ResetContent();
m_cPortfolios.Dir(DDL_READWRITE, _T("*.txt"));

What am I missing? What should I do to make the filenames show the full name in Win98.

Thanks,
jper

try this code

CString strFile = GetProfilesDir() + _T("c*.icc");
     for (bool bMore = ff.FindFile(strFile), profiles=0; bMore; ++profiles)
         {
         bMore = ff.FindNextFile();
         m_combo.AddString( ff.GetFileName() );
         }

     Hope this helps
