I should say - Will that little sniplet check if the given directories exsists, and if not, create them? If not, can you let me know where I'm going wrong? Thank you so much!

It looks like Vb 6.0 to me

heres a .Net version that does the same thing

    Dim finfo As New System.IO.FileInfo("C:\temp\mydocuments\mfile.exe")
        Dim dir As System.IO.DirectoryInfo = finfo.Directory
        If Not dir.Exists Then
            dir.Create()
            MessageBox.Show("Directory created")
        Else
            MessageBox.Show("Directory exists")
        End If

Dim DirInfo As New DirectoryInfo("C:\Temp")
If DirInfo.Exists Then    'Directory Exists
     'You are good to go...
Else
      DirInfo.CreateSubdirectory("C:\Temp")
End If
