#include  <windows.h>
#include  <svrapi.h>

void  main ()
{
struct share_info_50  si ;
NET_API_STATUS  NetResult ;

lstrcpy(si.shi50_netname,"RESOURCE") ;  // Name for the shared resource
si.shi50_type = STYPE_DISKTREE ;  // Disk resource
si.shi50_flags = SHI50F_FULL | SHI50F_PERSIST ;      
// a combination of the following flags :
// SHI50F_RDONLY  Read-only resource
// SHI50F_FULL  Full access resource
// SHI50F_PERSIST  The share persists between system startups
// SHI50F_SYSTEM  The share is not normally visible
si.shi50_remark = "Commentary" ;  // Commentary for the shared resource
si.shi50_path = "C:\\WINDOWS" ;  // Path to share
lstrcpy(si.shi50_rw_password,"rwpwd") ;  // Password for read/write access (set to "" for no password)
lstrcpy(si.shi50_ro_password,"rpwd") ;  // Password for read-only access (set to "" for no password)

// Be careful that shi50_netname, shi50_rw_password and shi50_ro_password fields are string buffers,
// while shi50_remark and shi50_path fields are string pointers.
// For more info, see svrapi.h

NetResult = NetShareAdd(NULL,50,(char*)&si,sizeof (struct share_info_50)) ;
if (NetResult != NERR_Success)
  {
  // Share creation error
  }

// Link with svrapi.lib
}
