SHBrowseForFolder does not work with BIF_NEWDIALOGSTYLE
Posted on 2006-11-26
I've had XP for awhile. Programs I've written have used SHBrowseForFolder for several years with no problems. For the last two or three months, SHBrowseForFolder will not work in any program if used with BIF_NEWDIALOGSTYLE. This is true for programs I've written as well as programs I download or install. What happens is, the dialog will appear showing appropriate buttons, but the treeview is missing. Because the treeview is missing, no folders are shown. I need to get this working again because software I download often doesn't work, because the same blank "browse for folder" dialog appears.
