ShellExecute() is declared in Shell

ShellExecute() is declared in Shell

ShellExecute() is declared in Shell

ShellExecute() is declared in Shellapi.h or windows.h?

The biggest problems have the simplest solutions.

RE: ShellExecute() is declared in Shell

Easy way to help yourself


#include <windows.h>
#include <shellapi.h>

int main ()

This will produce an error. Highlight ShellExecute, right click and select Goto Definition. This will pop up the file where it is declared.



cd /d c:\p*86*
cd "Micro* SDKs"
findstr /s ShellExecute *.h 

This would have taken 5 minutes instead of the few hours/days that you've spent waiting for the answer.
