Hi Mark,

I'm not aware of a SHGetFolders API, however there is a SHGetFolderLocation function. This function requires CommCtrls version 5.0 or higher. What version of CommCtrls do you have? IIRC NT 4.0 started with 4.70, however by installing IE 5 or higher you also get a newer CommCtrl DLL. I'm sure there is also a redistributable somewhere on the Microsoft site that allows to install a newer CommCtrl DLL version without having to install IE.
