Try this sample program!

{-----------}

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Button1: TButton;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private-Deklarationen }
  public
    { Public-Deklarationen }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

uses shlobj;
{$R *.DFM}




Function CreateFolder(Foldername:string; where:integer): boolean;
var  pidl          : PItemIDList;
     ProgramPath   : PChar;

begin
  result := False;
  if SUCCEEDED(SHGetSpecialFolderLocation(0, where, pidl)) then begin
    ProgramPath := StrAlloc(max_path);
    SHGetPathFromIDList(pidl, ProgramPath);
    SetLastError(0);
    CreateDirectory(PChar(ProgramPath + '\\' + Foldername), nil );
    if (GetLastError()=0)or(GetLastError()=ERROR_ALREADY_EXISTS) then result := True;
    StrDispose(ProgramPath);
  end;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
     createfolder('Some cool Program',  CSIDL_PROGRAMS);
{
All this values you can insert here:
  CSIDL_PROGRAMS                      
  CSIDL_PERSONAL                      
  CSIDL_FAVORITES                    
  CSIDL_STARTUP                      
  CSIDL_DESKTOPDIRECTORY              
  CSIDL_COMMON_PROGRAMS              
  CSIDL_COMMON_DESKTOPDIRECTORY      
}
end;

end.
