I checked several versions of the Lazarus port on Luiz's github 
((https://github.com/blikblum/VirtualTreeView-Lazarus - the version 
included in Lazarus is based on v5)), and they all have OleUtils outside 
the Windows ifdef, the code is:

   {$ifdef Windows}

In fact, OleUtils is a unit which provides some Windows-functionality 
for other widgetsets. However, it does not belong the VirtualTreeViews - 
it is contained in the lclextensions package which you must compile 
first, before touching VirtualTreeViews. Maybe it is sufficient to 
simply do a clean rebuild of the IDE.
