The GetExpandedName function retrieves the original name of a compressed file, if the file was compressed by using the Microsoft File Compression Utility (COMPRESS.EXE) and the /r option was specified.

Declare Function GetExpandedName Lib "lz32.dll" Alias "GetExpandedNameA" (ByVal lpszSource As String, ByVal lpszBuffer As String) As Long

Operating Systems Supported
Requires Windows NT 3.1 or later; Requires Windows 95 or later


Parameter Information
- lpszSource
Points to a string that specifies the name of a compressed file.

- lpszBuffer
Points to a buffer that receives the name of the compressed file.

Return Values
If the function succeeds, the return value is 1.

If the function fails, the return value is LZERROR_BADVALUE.

Note that GetExpandedName calls neither SetLastError nor SetLastErrorEx; thus, its failure does not affect a threadís last-error code.
