CreateDirectoryEx

The CreateDirectoryEx function creates a new directory with a specified path that retains the attributes of a specified template directory.

VB4-32,5,6
Declare Function CreateDirectoryEx Lib "kernel32" Alias "CreateDirectoryExA" (ByVal lpTemplateDirectory As String, ByVal lpNewDirectory As String, lpSecurityAttributes As SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES) As Long

VB.NET
System.IO.Directory.CreateDirectory

Operating Systems Supported
Requires Windows NT 3.5(1) or later; Requires Windows 95 or later

Library
Kernel32

Parameter Information
lpTemplateDirectory
Points to a null-terminated string that specifies the path of the directory to use as a template when creating the new directory.

lpNewDirectory
Points to a null-terminated string that specifies the path of the directory to be created.

lpSecurityAttributes
Pointer to a SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES structure that determines whether the returned handle can be inherited by child processes. If lpSecurityAttributes is NULL, the handle cannot be inherited.
Windows NT: The lpSecurityDescriptor member of the structure specifies a security descriptor for the new directory. If lpSecurityAttributes is NULL, the directory gets a default security descriptor. The target file system must support security on files and directories for this parameter to have an effect.
Windows 95: The lpSecurityDescriptor member of the structure is ignored.

Return Values
If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
