File location as parameter for console app?

Recommended Posts

Hi! I made a Win32 app and when you drag a file onto it, its location was passed in the command line. Now I''m trying to get the same thing for a console app. Any ideas how I get windows to tell me the file and its location? Thanks for your help in advance.

Well, the main() function does have the two arguments, argc and argv, that contain all the items of the command line. And there is also the GetCommandLine() Win32 API call.

I figured it out last night...
I forgot to check all the fields of the pointer.
It''s in the second field if anyone cares.
