C# – Setting file associations in Windows mobile 5+


Its basically the same as in windows, but when your trying to set file associations to a program that lives inside a folder that has spaces in it you need to get the "short" name of that folder. In regular windows i use this:

private static extern uint
GetShortPathName(string lpszLongPath,
[Out] StringBuilder lpszShortPath,
uint cchBuffer);

So my question becomes, does anyone know of a built in function i can use to replace the above function, or know of a exacly what this function does so i could recreate it in C#.

Best Solution

Windows CE, which is the base of WinMo, doesn't use 8.3 file naming for anything, so I'm certain that you don't need to use them for defining file associations.
