vb getfolder not working properly in vista pe

Recommended Posts


I have this bit of vb code...

Private Sub MountB_Click()

MountPath.Text = GetFolder(Me.hWnd, "ÇëÑ¡Ôñ WIM ¾µÏñ¹ÒÔصÄĿ¼")

End Sub

and it does not seem to work properly within vista pe winpe 2. Works fine in XP and 2003 but just opens an blank explorer window.

I am new to all the vb thing so please be gentle

the last bit is in chinese PAR

either way, that GetFolder statement is strange looking.

GetFolder returns a folder object which contains various properties/methods.

here's a VB example:

(even though it's in VBS it should be similar enough for you to understand)
