I don't really understand all this discussion, since the windows API
happily accepts "z:/dir" as a valid folder name. Try a
CreateDirectory("c:/xxxx", NULL), it will return TRUE for success. As
far as I know, all MSDOS and Windows API function have always accepted
forward slashes as path names. Only the built-in commands of
command.com and cmd.exe reject the forward slahes.
