Examples

EX1

int LocalFileTimeToFileTime_ex1()
{
    WIN32_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DATA    fileInfo;
    string strFile = "c:\\test.txt";
    BOOL bRet = FALSE;
    if(!strFile.IsFile())
    {
        HANDLE hFile = CreateFile(strFile, GENERIC_WRITE, FILE_SHARE_READ, NULL, CREATE_NEW, FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL, NULL);
        if (hFile != INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE)
        {
            CloseHandle(hFile);
        }
    }
 
    if(GetFileAttributesEx(strFile, 0, &fileInfo))

            if(FileTimeToSystemTime(&localFiletime, &sysTime))
            {
