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 Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long

Private Sub Form_Load()
    'To display it in windows explorer
    ShellExecute Me.hwnd, "Explore", "c:\temp", vbNullString, vbNullString, vbNormalFocus
   
    'To simply open the folder
    ShellExecute Me.hwnd, "Explore", "c:\temp", vbNullString, vbNullString, vbNormalFocus
End Sub

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.
