How do I access History (Win95, shell32.dll version 4.00) ?

Hi,

How do I access History on pure computers (Win95, shell32.dll version 4.00)
?
This call
        SHGetSpecialFolderLocation(NULL, CSIDL_HISTORY, &pidl);
returns E_INVALIDARG for CSIDL_HISTORY  but it works
for CSIDL_DESKTOP and some others. It seams like
History has a fixed location... I'm not shure... Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Val

Use SHGetFolderPath from SHFOLDER.DLL.

Thanks a lot,

Hmm...  I don't have shfolder.h and shfolder.lib in my istallation of
MSCV6.00 SP4, it's okay (I use LoadLibrary) but what is SHGFP_TYPE_CURRENT?
0 seams ok (NT4+IE5.5). I havn't tested it on Win95 + IE4, hopefuly it will
work

Just download and install the Platform SDK from
http://msdn.microsoft.com/downloads/sdks/platform/platform.asp. This will
have the SHFOLDER header, library and the redistribution package in it.

Thanks :) it took me 3 hours, but it works. The only one problem is that
I don't want to distribute shfolder.dll, it's 100k in size :(
 
 
 

1. SHGetFolderPath in Shell32.dll version 6.0

I need to make use of the SHGetFolderPath shell API
function, but it's not included in my Shell32.dll version
6.0 (build 2800). All documentation I can find says it
should be included in all version later that 5.0! Can
anybody help me out here?

Thanks Lasse.
