I want to use a specific function out of a DLL.
As far as I know I can use:
rundll32.exe <DLLNAME>,<FUNCTION>

But how do I pass parameters to the function?
Show it for the example: CreateDirectoryA

Thanks in advance...

You cannot use rundll32 to call Win32 API (and CreateDirectoryA).See more information in http://www.microsoft.com/kb/articles/q164/7/87.htm .But you can write your own simple program:#include <windows.h>void main(int argc,char* argv[]){   CreateDirectory(argv[1],NULL);}Compile it as console app by using any 32bit compiler.   CreateDirectory
