Why dont you just use @AppDataDir and DirCreate?

DirCreate(@AppDataDir & "Lotus\Notes\Data" ,"",@SW_HIDE)

Oops , there's a problem, I fogot to delete ,"",@SW_HIDE , please remove it before use DirCreate

DirCreate Function only need path to create Folder:

DirCreate ( "path" )

BTW, you should put autoit code between autoit bbcode : [autoit] Your code [ /autoit] to make it easy to understand :)

Sorry for bad English :P

Hello to all
Since few hours i'm play around with AutoIt. First thanks for the many information here in the forum.

I noticed that the code above is not quite correct. There is missing a backslash in the path.

;does not work, missing backslash
DirCreate(@AppDataDir & "Lotus\Notes\Data")

;This is how it works, tested on windows 7 pro x64
DirCreate(@AppDataDir & "\Lotus\Notes\Data")

I know the thread is old and the correction is peanuts. But maybe it will help someone.

Best Regards
