I have a problem.
AssignFile(f,filename);
        Rewrite(f);
i get an error that it is invalid filename.
And filename is pics/new.sim/filename
It is very important for me that the middle dir is called new.sim
How can i do this then?
Please help, i m desperate.

did the directory exist?
(your filepath is relative to the current dir)

Shouldn't it  be pics\new.sim\filename instead?

- create full desired file name with path, using ParamStr(0) if needed
 - ExtractPathName
 - DirectoryExists - check directory existance
 - ForceDirectories if directory doesn't exists

Sorry guys, i cant give you points. As soon as i posted i realized that not all .sim directories were created(there are over a 50 of those).
Thx anyway.
I would  be happy if moderator closes this question.

I think you should give the points to kretzschmar, after all he gave the right answer and you posted that you had already found the answer 6 hours after he posted his answer.
