Accessing files in Windows 7 Libraries

Recommended Posts


Hello everybody

I'm doing a small interactive program that users on my company network runs to write information got from instrument measurements.

This program writes a file that needs to be both available for users and sometimes be shared among other users. The latter is an option.

Many of the users have Windows 7 machines, and they extensively began to use the Windows 7 Libraries (that I personally hate, but I didn't have the power to discourage the use).

Anyway, my question is: when a user saves the file into a Library, how can I get the real file path ?

I'm searching the Shell Reference on MSDN, but my programming skills are far from being deep.

Does anybody have some hint?

Thanks in advance for your help

This topic may help you with this, at least find the true path and perhaps find a work-around.

Still no luck, also analyzing the above posted link.

Does anybody have any idea?
