Getting Subdirectories Only From Path

Hello, Looking to get subdirectories from a path

I'm using the code below but it's not compiling correctly for me I think because I do not have that c runtime installed. Could you please tell me where to download/install what I need to compile this correctly?

// GetWoWUSRNAME.cpp : Defines the entry point for the console application.
#include "stdafx.h"
#include <iostream>
#include "windows.h"
#include <conio.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <dirent.h>
using namespace std;
void PrintDirectory (const char* DirName);
void main()
	PrintDirectory("C:\\Program Files\\World of Warcraft\\WTF\\Account");
void PrintDirectory (const char* DirName)
DIR * dir = opendir(DirName);
while( dir->d_handle != -1 )
DIR* subdir = opendir (  dir->dd_dir.d_name);
if (  subdir) { // success, it is a directory
  cout << dir->dd_dir.d_name << "\n";
  closedir (subdir);
