Implementing GetTempPath

 Implementing GetTempPath

I want to write to a temporary file, which can survive from one session to
another. I don't want to hard code the file path as this program must work
on multiple computers with a variety of operating systems.
I see there is a function called GetTempPath, however, I have not  been able
to get it to work. I am developing an addin for Outlook using VB6.
Is there any reference I can lookup on-line?

'declare this

Private Declare Function GetTempPath Lib "kernel32" Alias "GetTempPathA"
(ByVal nBufferLength As Long, ByVal lpBuffer As String) As Long

Dim strTemp As String

strTemp = String(100, Chr$(0))
GetTempPath 100, strTemp
strTemp = Left$(strTemp, InStr(strTemp, Chr$(0)) - 1)
