Api Call for Subst command?

Is there any way of subst:ing a directory to a drive using the Api or any other fairly simple way of doing this without using subst?

The API is called DefineDosDevice, but is only available under win98, winNT4 and win2000 - NOT under win95. So if you need this functionality under win95 as well, you have no other choice than starting "subst" as a child process (recommended in hidden state).

There is a TSubst component on my web site.  (It cheats a great deal really, but it DOES do the subst, even in NT.)

Madshi, thank you for the nudge in the right direction.

Now i tried that Call and I got some problems with it.

So if you would just post a sample for
a simple way of "Subst:ing" any path to any driveletter I'd Give you the points

Sorry about the delay but i havn't been able to work on the problem until now.
