ShGetFileInfo is the API that helps in finding out whether a file is a shortcut to some other file.

Here is wrapper function…

bool IsShortcut( LPCTSTR lpctszPath_i )
{
    SHFILEINFO shFileInfo = { 0 };
    return (( SHGetFileInfo( lpctszPath_i,
                             0,
                             &shFileInfo,
                             sizeof( shFileInfo ),
                             SHGFI_ATTRIBUTES )) && ( shFileInfo.dwAttributes & SFGAO_LINK ) == SFGAO_LINK );
}// End IsShortcut

Cool isn’t it? 8)
