IShellLinkA::SetWorkingDirectory method

Sets the name of the working directory for a Shell link object.

Syntax

HRESULT SetWorkingDirectory(
  LPCSTR pszDir
);

Parameters

pszDir

Type: LPCTSTR

The address of a buffer that contains the name of the new working directory.

Return Value

Type: HRESULT

If this method succeeds, it returns S_OK. Otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code.

The working directory is optional unless the target requires a working directory. For example, if an application creates a Shell link to a Microsoft Word document that uses a template residing in a different directory, the application would use this method to set the working directory.
