Hmm. That would seem to have it. Can you check the version on your
SHELL32.DLL?
The MSDN docs for the version in question
(http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/shellc
c/platform/shell/reference/functions/shgetspecialfolderpath.asp) claims
it needs either Win2k or The IE 4.0 Desktop Update. Which resolves to
shell32.dll version 4.71 or later.
