Windows Explorer is a TreeView control.  You can use this without MFC (although it's a lot easier with MFC).

This is article which shows how to work with tree control without MFC:
http://www.codeproject.com/treectrl/treeview.asp

And this article shows how to display directory tree using MFC:
http://www.codeproject.com/treectrl/filetree.asp

You can use both articles to make your project.

The easiset way to show a tree of all directories is to use the

    SHBrowseForFolder

API function.   This provides a simple way to display the nested tree structure, including My Network Places, My Documents, and all of the others.  It lets a user select any folder anywhere on your system and returns the full pathname.  It would not be useful for other things, but your question does not state what functionality you need.
