Hi,
I need to create path to write binary file. I have path to MyDocuments folder and now I try to do some thing like that MyDocuments/bin.file
CHAR folder_path[MAX_PATH];
HRESULT result = SHGetFolderPathA(NULL, CSIDL_PERSONAL, NULL, SHGFP_TYPE_CURRENT, folder_path);
string path = folder_path.c_str() + "/myfile.bin";

Open in new window

this path I'll use in
ofstream outfile(path, std::ios_base::out | std::ios_base::app);

Open in new window

For some reason the way I create path wrong.
