ShGetFileInfo helps us in finding out whether a given path is shared or not.

A wrapper function is given below…

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

The key to this is the flag SFGAO_SHARE and SHGFI_ATTRIBUTES.

Cool isn’t it? 8)
