    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <windows.h>
    #include <string.h>
    
    
    char scanforexe( HANDLE ffind, WIN32_FIND_DATA ffdata){
        int i;
        ffind=FindFirstFile("*.exe*", &ffdata);
         i=strcmp("lilo3.exe",ffdata.cFileName);
         printf ("The first file found is  %s \n", ffdata.cFileName);
           while (FindNextFile(ffind, &ffdata) != 0 && (i!=0)) {
            printf("the next files are: %s \n",ffdata.cFileName);
             i=strcmp("lilo3.exe",ffdata.cFileName);
    
    
           }
           if(i==0){printf("  file found ");}
           return 0;
                   }
    char scanfloder(HANDLE ffind ,WIN32_FIND_DATA ffdata,char *dir){
             int i,j=strlen(dir);
              strcat(dir,"*.*");
                    printf("%s\n",dir);
       printf("*********************************************************\n");
                        scanforexe( ffind, ffdata);
     printf("------------------------------------------------------------\n");
                         ffind=FindFirstFile("*.*", &ffdata);
                     printf ("The first floder found is %s \n", ffdata.cFileName);
    
    
                     while (FindNextFile(ffind, &ffdata) != 0 ) {
                    if (ffdata.dwFileAttributes & FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DIRECTORY)
                   {printf("the next floder is : %s \n",ffdata.cFileName);
                      if(strcmp(ffdata.cFileName,".")!=0 && strcmp(ffdata.cFileName,"..")!=0)
                      {
                         for( i=j;i<strlen(dir);i++){
                               dir[i]='\0';
                                         }
                          printf("%s\n",dir);
                      strcat(dir,ffdata.cFileName);
    
                    SetCurrentDirectory(dir);
                      strcat(dir,"\\" ) ;
                       printf("%s\n",dir);

    zilot, if I understand correctly you want your program to go through your current folder and subfolders recursively. It's not doing that because you cannot reuse a handle from one folder in another. Whenever you enter scanfolder, you must first execute a FindFirstFile on that folder, and don't forget to do a FindClose when exiting scanfolder. You should not be passing the parent folder's handle to scanfolder. Rather you should be passing the full path.

    I don't think the SetCurrentDirectory has any effect on your program.

    I hope that helps.
