How can I insert a DriveListBox Control to my VC 5.0 project? I've found the help topic about this control, but I 've not seen it in the Components and Controls Gallery.

What exactly are you trying to do?  I have manually created a separate drive list box.  If you just want to allow the user to search for a file, the Common Dialog Box Control would be your best bet.

If you need help with that just let me know.

I want to do a "Choose directory dialog" just like when you click the browse button when you create a new project in Microsoft Developper Studio.

Goto There are lots of directory selection controls there that should suit you. All the source code is freely availiable so can read and hopefully understand how it is all done.
