Open A Specific Folder on Windows 95/98 Computers

Hello guys.  I have some code that opens a specific folder.  It works fine on Windows XP/2000.
It does not work on Windows 95/98.  Is the code different for the two versions.
This is what I have that is working on Windows XP/2000

Shell "explorer.exe E:\Pictures", vbNormalFocus

Also, I don't have a Window 95 computer here at work, so I won't be able to test it until tonight.
For that reason, if I get a working solution, I will award the points tomorrow.

Thanks

Private Sub Form_Load()
    'To display it in windows explorer

    'To simply open the folder
    ShellExecute Me.hwnd, "Explore", "c:\temp", vbNullString, vbNullString, vbNormalFocus

Sorry, got carried away with the cut-and-paste...

To open the folder, use:
ShellExecute Me.hwnd, "Open", "c:\temp", vbNullString, vbNullString, vbNormalFocus

Hello Eric.  I tried your solution, but it did not work.
Just like the other code...it works on Windows  XP, but not on Windows 95.
Do you have any other suggestions?  Maybe a Reference that needs to be set or something like that.
