How can I create a new phone book entry without displaying the dialob box that
make this possible.

The function 'RasCreatePhonebookEntry' displays a dialog box in which the user types information
for the phone book entry. But I want to create one without this dialog box.

I samply want to create a default one.

It must works under win95 at WinNT4.

You need the RAS API Extensions found at

Then you can use the following procedure:
The RasSetEntryProperties functions changes the properties of a specified phonebook entry. This function can also be used to create a new phonebook entry.

When I call this function I became systematically

Source code :

void MyApp::OnMenu_SetDefaultEntry
  if (RasValidateEntryName(NULL, "My Entry")) return;

  RASENTRY stRasEntry = {0};
  DWORD    dwSize, dwError;

  dwSize = stRasEntry.dwSize = sizeof(RASENTRY);

  dwError = RasSetEntryProperties(NULL, "My Entry", &stRasEntry, dwSize, NULL, 0);
  if (dwError)
