WIN32_FIND_DATA findfiledata; How can I convert findfiledata.cFileName to a const char*? I'm not even sure what datatype that cFileName has really. Got to love the win typedefs.

cFileName is defined as TCHAR cFileName[MAX_PATH];

If you have a Unicode enabled App TCHAR resolves to wchar_t, otherwise to char.

I assume you don't use unicode, so you can use cFileName like a const char*.

If you do, just use WideCharToMultiByte to convert it to an ansii char array.

Actually that wasn't the problem after all heh..
I forgot a wildcard after the pathname..
After adding that the test program worked just fine. :)
Thanks anyway.
