Use CFileFind class to find the files in the directory and then use SHFileOperation to delete the files

My program is without GUI. I Tryed to write the following code and got 0 (= fail) as a return. can you tell me why?
(The directory exist and contains several files and sub directories)

SHFILEOPSTRUCT FileOpStruct;
      FileOpStruct.hwnd = NULL;
      FileOpStruct.pFrom = "f:\\Working Folders\\input and output";
      FileOpStruct.pTo = NULL;
      FileOpStruct.wFunc = FO_DELETE;
      FileOpStruct.fFlags =      FOF_NOCONFIRMATION |
                                          FOF_NOERRORUI         |
                                          FOF_SILENT;
      int x = SHFileOperation(&FileOpStruct);
