What is the best way to Browse for Folders in VB3. I would like to use SHBrowseForFolder so I can have long filenames. Can SHBrowseForFolder be called from VB3?

VB3 ????? VB3 is 16 bit and not supposted by MS any more, plus the functionality in it is fairly limited.

AFAIK (or remember) VB3 cannott support long filenames because of it being 16 bit. I cant be 100% sure though, its been 10 or 11 years since I used VB3 last.

Just a FYI.
If you do think of upgrading, I think you have to port up to VB4 before you try to port to VB5 or VB6
