Using NetShareDel. I can't make it work!

I am using NetShareDel and declaring it as:

 function NetShareDel(ServerName, ShareName : PChar; level:DWord) : DWord; stdcall; external 'NETAPI32.DLL';

I create a share and call it "Test" and then do a simple button click...

procedure TForm1.Button4Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
 NetShareDel(nil, pChar('GuestGate'), 0);
end;

... to unshare the "Test" shared folder.

It does not unshare the folder.

What have I done/am doing wrong! I can use NetShareAdd just fine, but something's amiss here and I am brain dead!

Thanks!

John

In WinNT (or high) you must use ShareName in WideChar.
NameNT:PWChar;
...
Size:=SizeOf(WideChar)*256;
GetMem(NameNT,Size);
StringToWideChar(ShareName,NameNT,Size);
NetShareDelNT(nil,NameNT,0);

That did it!

THANKS!

Summation for others:

function NetShareDel(ServerName, ShareName : pwChar; level:DWord) : DWord; stdcall; external 'NETAPI32.DLL';

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
 NameNT : PWChar;
 Size : Integer;
begin
 Size := SizeOf(WideChar)*256;
 GetMem(NameNT,Size);
 StringToWideChar('Test',NameNT,Size);
 NetShareDel(nil,NameNT,0);
end;
