> Bram>Is there always a short name? E.g., on NTFS file systems.In general, no, Windows file systems are not required to provide short
names/long names. NTFS normally provides short filenames, but this can be
disabled via the registry. The best way to find out the short/long names is
to use GetShortPathName  and GetLongPathName  (be sure to read the
note about the Win95 and NT4 implementation for GLPN).
Remember, Information is not knowledge; Knowledge is not Wisdom;
Wisdom is not truth; Truth is not beauty; Beauty is not love;
Love is not music; Music is the best.
