I want to list files and directorys with the image icons. I can only get files. Or I can get only directorys. I know its something with the flags but can not figure it out. I checked documentary with the command and used all the flags but still does not work

If i just use FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DIRECTORY, than everything is a folder..even files like *.sys

If i just use FILE_ATTRIBUTE_ARCHIVE, then folders don't get listed.....

i looked in Winnt.h..nothing works

When using the SHGFI_USEFILEATTRIBUTES flag, the dwFileAttributes parameter specifies if the passed file name is a directory or a file. So you must pass the attribute of the specific file and not a combination of attributes.

I assume that you are using CFileFind or FindFirstFile() / FindNextFile() to get the file list. Then use the attributes provided by these functions or just FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DIRECTORY for directories and FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL for files.
