NAME

FindExecutableW  (SHELL32.@)

SYNOPSIS

 HINSTANCE FindExecutableW
 (
  LPCWSTR lpFile,
  LPCWSTR lpDirectory,
  LPWSTR  lpResult
 )

DESCRIPTION

This function returns the executable associated with the specified file for the default verb.

PARAMS

lpFile [In] The file to find the association for. This must refer to an existing file otherwise FindExecutable fails and returns SE_ERR_FNF.
lpResult [Out] Points to a buffer into which the executable path is copied. This parameter must not be NULL otherwise FindExecutable segfaults. The buffer must be of size at least MAX_PATH characters.

RETURNS

A value greater than 32 on success, less than or equal to 32 otherwise. See the SE_ERR_* constants.

NOTES

On Windows® XP and 2003, FindExecutable seems to first convert the filename into 8.3 format, thus taking into account only the first three characters of the extension, and expects to find an association for those. However other Windows® versions behave sanely.
