Hey, I''m just wondering...is there a way to create directories using visual c++ instead of dos? Becuase I think it would get kind of annoying to have to execute a dos file everytime you want to intall the program to create directories.

There''s always InstallShield. This is what I see most PC games use to install their games. I''ve never personally used it before but it came standard with my Visual Studio.
