Getting  error when trying to use CreateFile

Why can't I use createFile with flags = FILE_FLAG_DELETE_ON_CLOSE, it always returns error. I do not have admin privilages, just basic user on Win2K.  Is this a flag that can't be used when you are logged onto a system as a normal user and not admin?

I am assuming this is normal behavior because under admin privs it works fine. Can someone point me to a link where I can get some info on this?

Thanks.

Try using 'FILE_SHARE_DELETE' as the 'dwShareMode' argument to 'CreateFile()'...
