Directory Picker in VC++ 6.0 with MFC

I want to get a directory through a dialog. There is a standard dialog that allows you to select a file, but not only a directory. Also, I cannot use ActiveX (WinNT).
How can I manage that?

Unfortunately, there's no MFC class to help you.  But there is an API: SHBrowseForFoder(). It'll present a dialog htat lets the user browse for a folder throughout their system.

A bit of a trick...but couldn't you selct the file and cut of the filename to get the directory selected?

or try MS

The DIRPK sample was designed using the old style of common file dialogs and will work as intended only on Windows NT 3.51. On Windows 95 and future versions of NT (4.0), if you want to use the old style of common file dialogs, insure that:

Bruintje, I tried to use the DIRPK sample, but it didn't work properly (or I couldn't manage to implement it). But some other dude at C++ Programming Questions gave me a small, but very efficient sollution!
