    You can use CreateDirectory, a Windows API function.
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...edirectory.asp

    I have never really used it, but I'd imagine that something like this would work:
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h> //For NULL definition.. I think this is necessary... or is it? Also puts().
    #include <windows.h>
    
    int main ()
    {
    	if (CreateDirectory("C:\\Program Files\\blah", NULL) != TRUE)
    		puts("Oh no an error :(");
    
    	return 0;
    }
    [edit] It works but that link should be replaced with
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...edirectory.asp
