Chris Bensen – Too bad GetFinalPathNameByHandle only works if the handle is a file that has something in it. For a directory or file with zero bytes it fails in a bad way. So you can't get the name of a directory or a zero byte file. Kind of a bummer especially since this is a new to Vista API and would be really nice to have when used in conjunction with CreateSymbolicLink. There are ways of getting around the odd failure by creating a file map, but the directory and zero byte file is a bit more difficult requiring some rather serious hoop jumping.
