Using shBrowseForFolder

Hi friends
I am using the shBrowseForFolder function in my MFC app to allow the user browse and select a folder. I want to use the BIF_NEWDIALOGSTYLE flag for my browser but when I compile my program it says that BIF_NEWDIALOGSTYLE is undeclared. The documentation says that BIF_NEWDIALOGSTYLE  requires shell32.dll v 5.0 or later. I have win 2000 professional (with IE 5.0) installed on my PC and hence my shell32.dll should meet this requirement.
What else could be the problem ?

What version of the SDK do you have?  You are having a COMPILE ERROR and not a runtime error.  My guess is that you are using the old SDK and therefore .h files that came with your copy of VC++.  This is almost certainly out of date and lacks the declaration of this flag.

Go to the MSDN web site and download the current SDK:

http://www.microsoft.com/msdownload/platformsdk/sdkupdate/

It's really huge so if you have an MSDN subscription, getting it off of CD would be quicker.

or if you have got the latest sdk make sure your paths are in the right order - eg sdk paths first, msdev paths second

I do have the MSDN subscription with me but I am unable to find out which CD is the latest SDK (there are about 350 CDs) There are a few CDs titled 'Platform SDK'. Is this the same thing ? Is this SDK installed as a separate application or does it just update my existing visual studio installation ? Please help

SDK is installed as a separate application and it WILL NOT replace your Visual Studio header file.  That's why this is an issue!

If you don't know which of your CDs have the latest SDK, go to the MSDN web site and check the index and/or download the SDK from there.  You don't even have to be a subscriber to download the SDK, it's free for the taking...
