The GetCurrentDirectory function retrieves the current directory for the current process.
Declare Function GetCurrentDirectory Lib "kernel32" Alias "GetCurrentDirectory" (ByVal nBufferLength As Long, ByVal lpBuffer As String) As Long
|Operating Systems Supported|
|Requires Windows NT 3.1 or later; Requires Windows 95 or later|
Specifies the length, in characters, of the buffer for the current directory string. The buffer length must include room for a terminating null character.
Points to the buffer for the current directory string. This null-terminated string specifies the absolute path to the current directory.
|If the function succeeds, the return value specifies the number of characters written to the buffer, not including the terminating null character. |
If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
If the buffer pointed to by lpBuffer is not large enough, the return value specifies the required size of the buffer, including the number of bytes necessary for a terminating null character.
