You could look at passing the str.pOleStr field in the
SHELLDETAILS you got from GetDetailsOf to VarDateFromStr. It will
give you a DATE value that VariantTimeToSystemTime will convert
to a SYSTEMTIME from which you can get the years, months, days
GetDetailsOf(pidl, 3, &details);
VarDateFromStr(details.str.pOleStr, LOCALE_USER_DEFAULT, 0,
auto year = st.wYear;
auto month = st.wMonth;
You can convert that into a more D-friendly SysTime object using
SYSTEMTIMEToSysTime from the std.datetime package.
