How to unexpand environment variables in a string?

Ever felt the need for unexpanding expanded environment variables in a string…

Use PathUnExpandEnvStrings.

TCHAR szUnexpandedPath[MAX_PATH] = { 0 };
PathUnExpandEnvStrings( _T( “C:/windows/system32/” ),
szUnexpandedPath,
MAX_PATH );
wcout < < szUnexpandedPath;[/sourcecode] Output:
%SystemRoot%/System32/
