    Actually, in this context a DLL is considered to be an "executable" file. That doesn't imply that they can be executed directly, but DLLs do contain executable code.

    Code:
    Function ReturnPath () Export As String  
      Dim lZStr As Asciiz * %MAX_PATH  
      GetModuleFileName GetModuleHandle("mydll.dll"), lZStr,SizeOf (lZStr)  
      Function = lZStr
    End Function

    Thx Fred,

    I understood:
    ... the full path and filename for the executable file ...
    to mean this function only worked for a .exe file.

    Thx again

    Kind Regards

    Code:
    From MSDN
    DWORD GetModuleFileName(
      HMODULE hModule,    // handle to module
      LPTSTR lpFilename,  // file name of module
      DWORD nSize         // size of buffer
    );
    Parameters
    hModule 
    [in] Handle to the module whose file name is being requested. 
         If this parameter is NULL, GetModuleFileName returns the path for 
         the file containing the current process. 
    lpFilename 
    [out] Pointer to a buffer that receives the path and file name 
          of the specified module. 
    nSize 
    [in] Specifies the length, in TCHARs, of the lpFilename buffer. 
         If the length of the path and file name exceeds this limit, 
         the string is truncated.
    Use the DLL-Instancehandle to get the name of the DLL

    started a topic GetDllFileName - Does this exist?

    GetDllFileName - Does this exist?

    In an EXE if you want to knoe its filename you would use:

    GetModuleFileName(BYVAL 0&, TmpAsciiz, SIZEOF(TmpAsciiz))

    WinAPI says:
    The GetModuleFileName function retrieves the full path and filename for the executable file containing the specified module.

    Is there an equivelent for a Dll?

    Petzold doesnt seem to have anything listed and the WinAPI library might do but im guessing what it would be called.
