My comment:
Two pairs of functions ( FtpFindFirstFile, InternetFindNextFile ) and ( FindFirstFile, FindNextFile ) work similarly, except one important difference.

Between the FtpFindFirstFile and the InternetCloseHandle calls, the application cannot make another FtpFindFirstFile call for a given FTP session handle. If nevertheless such call is made, the function fails with ERROR_FTP_TRANSFER_IN_PROGRESS error.

The handle returned by the FtpFindFirstFile must be closed with the InternetCloseHandle function when no longer needed.

The FindFirstFile has no such limit; it can have muliple handles opened at the same time.
