If you reffering to a dialog that allows you to select a directory, like when you clikc the 'Browse' button in most application, you can use ShBrowseForFolder API

Thanx for the pointer MikeP, do you know the NT version since ShBrowseForFolder only works for Win95. Is there other API that works with NT. Or if I try to map the directory structure with a CTreeCtrl, will it be cumbersome and involves lotsa steps...? Thanx :)

You can find the source code to do so at http://www.codeguru.com/dialog/dir_dialog.shtml. Windows NT does support it.

Whenever the header file "shlobj.h" is used, my compilation alwiz got problem

G:\MSDEV\INCLUDE\shlobj.h(1079) : error C2501: 'NETRESOURCE' : missing decl-specifiers
G:\MSDEV\INCLUDE\shlobj.h(1079) : error C2146: syntax error : missing ';' before identifier 'nr'
G:\MSDEV\INCLUDE\shlobj.h(1079) : error C2501: 'nr' : missing decl-specifiers

Above are the three line that I get everytime I make a compilation. It's not part of my source, I supposed... BTW, I compile my program in NT Server

It seems that you are using Visual C++ 4.0. Edit your StdAfx.h and take out #define VC_EXTRALEAN.
