.Net or Win32?
If Win32, you might give this a try, it works with D7:


procedure TForm1.ListDirs(const Directory: String; List:TStrings);
var
  SR: TSearchRec;
begin
  if FindFirst(Directory+'*' , faDirectory, SR) = 0 then try
    repeat
      if SR.Attr=faDirectory then
        List.Add(Directory + SR.Name)
    until FindNext(SR) <> 0;
  finally
    FindClose(SR);
  end;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
   ListDirs('C:\',ListBox1.Items);
end;

Or use IncludeTrailingPathDelimiter if you want to also pass dir paths without trailing backslash:

procedure TForm1.ListDirs(Directory: String; List:TStrings);
var
  SR: TSearchRec;
begin
  Directory:=IncludeTrailingPathDelimiter(Directory);
  if FindFirst(Directory+'*' , faDirectory, SR) = 0 then try
    repeat
      if SR.Attr=faDirectory then
        List.Add(Directory + SR.Name)
    until FindNext(SR) <> 0;
  finally
    FindClose(SR);
  end;
end;
