How to convert between short and long path names

Use GetShortPathName to get short file name for a given long file name.

Use GetLongPathName to get long file name for a given short file name.

Eg:

[sourcecode language=’cpp’]TCHAR szPath[MAX_PATH] = { 0 };
GetShortPathName( _T( “C:/Program Files/Microsoft Visual Studio” ), szPath, MAX_PATH );
MessageBox( NULL, szPath, _T( “Short path” ), MB_OK );

TCHAR szShortPath[MAX_PATH];
_tcscpy( szShortPath, szPath );
GetLongPathName( szShortPath, szPath, MAX_PATH );
MessageBox( NULL, szPath, _T( “Long path” ), MB_OK );[/sourcecode]
