To avoid problems with ambiguous connect strings,
it is not much important what default values will be used
by the algorithm for creating fully specified path,
the values just need to be consistent during lifetime of server process (for superserver).
So if the server itself does not change current drive/directory,
GetFullPathName should work.

Yes. (avoiding WinAPI calls is always good thing :-)
