I remember someone at MS at one point had put together some small C# library that wrapped a bunch of new shell functions that were introduced, I think, with Windows 7, and jumplist support (which I believe is what you're after) was part of that. If SHAddToRecentDocs doesn't work, maybe you'll have better luck with this--maybe there's some sort of initialization you have to do that this library takes care of under the covers. Unfortunately MS never really supported it, and went so far as to remove from its own site and has pretty much been in denial about whether it ever existed or not.

[After some digging]

Found it in my own archive. They called it the Windows API Code Pack, and the last version was 1.1. There's a discussion here on SO about it. Seems like it's now on GitHub--unsupported, but available. I can't vouch for that version however.
