I'm Trying to Create a Method that creates a file in an ATL ASP COM using C++.

Here is my code, but no file is created:


     ts_out_handle = CreateFile((LPCTSTR)FileName,

     if (ts_out_handle == INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE)
          return S_FALSE;

     return S_OK;

Try to add this code:

...::CreateFile(BSTR FileName) {

char *p;
p = OLE2T(FileName);

... CreateFile(p, ...)

If UNICODE in general is OK for you, just use

    ts_out_handle = CreateFileW((LPCTSTR)FileName

Note the capital 'W', it refers to the UNICODE version of 'CreateFile()'
