Standard c/c++ dll to get shortcut target/path...
I am in need of a dll that, if passed the shortcut/.lnk name and the Start Menu -> Programs path if needed, will return the target attribute of that shortcut.
I am going to be calling this from a Lua script based application from Indigo Rose called AutoPlay Media Studio. They have a DLL.Callfunction action that would make use of this newly created .dll. You supply the .dll, function name, parameters and away it should go to return the string path/target.
It is recommended that this 'standard' dll be written in c or c++. The only problem is I know next to nothing about either and I'm kind of in a bind.
Any points to existing dll code or any other examples here would be GREATLY, and I mean GREATLY appreciated!!
Thanks much in advance!!!!
