int WINAPI WinMain(
HINSTANCE hInstance, // handle to current instance
HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, // handle to previous instance
LPSTR lpCmdLine, // pointer to command line
int nCmdShow // show state of window
);

lpCmdLine contains the command line excluding the program name
Ex:
c:\game test
lpCmdLine contains test

Actually, in that example, I believe lpCmdLine contains "game.exe test". But all you have to do is MessageBox( NULL, lpCmdLine, NULL, MB_OK ); and find out for yourself.

Then you just parse it. I wrote a simple string parser that converts it into int argc and char** argv like in a DOS (or Console) program. It''s really pretty easy, since you know all words are seperated by one space. No tabs or multiple spaces or anything.

Try CommandLineToArgvW() instead (note that it''s Unicode).
