MakeSureDirectoryPathExists function

Creates all the directories in the specified path, beginning with the root.

Syntax


BOOL WINAPI MakeSureDirectoryPathExists(
  _In_  PCSTR DirPath
);

Parameters

DirPath [in]

A valid path name. If the final component of the path is a directory, not a file name, the string must end with a backslash (\) character.

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is TRUE.

If the function fails, the return value is FALSE. To retrieve extended error information, call GetLastError.

Remarks

Each directory specified is created, if it does not already exist. If only some of the directories are created, the function will return FALSE.

This function does not support Unicode strings. To specify a Unicode path, use the SHCreateDirectoryEx function.
