I tried to use it like this...

Procedure Button1.Click...
Var Test:PChar;
    BufferS:Integer;
Begin
   BufferS:=255;
   GetWindowsDirectory(test,BufferS);
   ShowMessage(Test);
End;

However, I get some message like "Access Violation"...
Is there somebody outthere who knows how to use it?
Please give me a syntax example....

Thanx!
Erik N.
