    Is there standard syntax for recovering a drive ID from Windows?

    Searching Win32API.inc has been unproductive so far.

    Thanks.

    Given what, wanting what?

    Given a not-fully-qualified file name, get the drive letter whereon it resides?

    Given a drive letter, get the [computername\\]volume name?

    Given a computer name, find all drive letters available?

      FWIW, searching win32API.INC will RARELY tell you how to get some piece of information.. it will tell you how to call the WinAPI function designed to do so - assuming you already know the name of that function.

      Searching Google(r) will generally be more productive than searching any of the Windows' header files.

      If you don't have a WinAPI reference, you can use the online version for free. You can start at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp

          In Peter's program, the WINMAIN function will need to have an added BYVAL in tthe parameters here:
          FUNCTION WINMAIN ... BYVAL CmdLine AS ASCIIZ PTR, ...

          Then it should compile and run in the current compilers.
