    Please, provide the exact error message together with the error code, as well as some info about your system, like Windows OS, VS OS

    Re: SHCreateDirectory not found

    Well excluding "format.h", those headers compile fine for me with VS2022.

    But without seeing the code that gives the compiler errors...

    This test code compiles OK with the given header:

    int main() {
    	HWND hwnd {};
    	SHCreateDirectory(hwnd, L"path");
    Note that the 2nd param is of type PCWSTR ie a wide (unicode) string and not an ASCII one.

    All advice is offered in good faith only. All my code is tested (unless stated explicitly otherwise) with the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio (using the supported features of the latest standard) and is offered as examples only - not as production quality. I cannot offer advice regarding any other c/c++ compiler/IDE or incompatibilities with VS. You are ultimately responsible for the effects of your programs and the integrity of the machines they run on.
