simple LAN access

I need help accessing my LAN in VB6. I would like to be able to display all the shared paths that I can see when I open "my network places". For clarity, the purpose of the program is to search through all shared network files and list any duplicate files within the network.

I'm not sure how to go about this at all.

I apologize if this topic has been covered before (I did search). I would greatly appreciate any help that you could offer me.

Hi there,

Heard of WMI before? Windows Management Instrumentation is correct tool to be able to perform above mentioned task. Do a little research on WMI on google.com, hope it helps. Good luck & Take care.
