Hi!
Wouldn't it be easier to call SHBrowseForFolder?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

The shortcomings of SHBrowseForFolder are many and well-known.  Please do not even contemplate it.

Actually, I made some fixes that I should post.  In particular, when the dialog window is resized the text box resizes too (even under Windows 95).

Hi,

Go to Projects->Settings->Link tab and then specify "imagehlp.lib" in the "object/Library Modules" section. Now compile it. It will work.

Linking...
DirDialog.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __imp__MakeSureDirectoryPathExists@4
Debug/MP3 Organizer.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals
