# Testing if a folder is shared (solved)

Hi all I want a method for testing if a folder is shared and if it is, what share name it has. Sort of:
std::string getSharedName(const std::string& folderName); // Returns an empty string if folder isn't shared and something like "\\MyComputerName\MySharedFolderName" if it's shared.


BTW. This is under Windows XP Pro and C++. Edit: Solved, after asking I tried google one more time and came up with a solution (WNetGetUniversalName).
