Long filename saving/loading in Win32...

OK, how can I use FSEEK to put the file cursor at the very beginning of a binary-mode file? I open the file like this:

FILE *tempfile;

if((tempfile = fopen("", "w+b")) == NULL)

//Error routine is here


//Code writes to the file


fseek(tempfile, 1, SEEK_SET);


The program is then supposed to copy the data i stored back into the same var, and put it into another file the user names. I get an error though, "read of address 0xFFFFFFFF" which tells me that I am not using fseek properly somehow. Any help will begreatly appreciated.
