The function SHGetSpecialFolderPathA is only implemented in shell32.dll on Win98, not Win95 ... thanks for putting that in the documentation Microsoft! Grrrr.... Hey win95 users, don't use the new LJ client for awhile .... I need to fix this crap.

Update: if Win95 users have IE4 or newer, then their Shell32.dll supports this function. Goddamn I hate Windows programming.

If Microsoft documented such things, it would cripple the MS-CSE industry and hinder their perfdormance as robber-baron monopolists. By the way, NT4/SP3 seems to have the same problem as W95, even with IE4.
