I have a question whit FileFindFirstFile

I am needing help with this. It happens that I want to browse files, but they are in subfolders with different names. My question is how can I examine all the subfolders that are in that folder? I will explain:
I'm just making a plug-in system for some software, and I need to examine the manifest files. The structure of the folders is like this, we are going to start from the main folder of the script.
Plug-ins folder: The folder where plug-ins created by users are stored.
plug-ins\dictionaries subfolder: The folder that contains the files for this plug-in.
Another subfolder, plug-ins\test: a template for making your plug-ins.
And so if you are going to create more future plug-ins there are more subfolders that you don't know the name of.
What I want to do is to analyze, from the plug-ins folder, all the manifests that are in the subfolders. I made this code, and when I put it to the test (in debugging with a script that calls the function with a MSGBox) it returns 0, which means that there is an error finding the files.
By the way, I used wildcards and searched on the internet, for example: Plug-ins\**\information.ini but it doesn't work. I hope you can help me.
I leave the code:

Func ScanAddOnInfos()
    $hFiles = FileFindFirstFile(@ScriptDir & "\plug-ins\information.ini")
    If $hFiles = -1 Then Return 0
    Local $sFileName = "", $aResult[]
    While 1
        $aResult[] = FileRead(FileOpen($sFileName, $FO_READ))
        $sFileName = FileFindNextFile($hFiles)
        If @error Then ExitLoop
    Return $aResult

Why can't you use _FileListToArrayRec (@ScriptDir & "\Plug-ins", "information.ini", 1, 1, 1, 2) then loop through the results?

Thanks for your answer. Yes, it has indeed worked.
