Creating Empty Directories

Anyone know how to do this via an inf (ie making an addon create an empty folder)?

Thanks



Edit: Nevermind - I thought I had done this in the past and finally found the addon I had made that required an empty directory.

MU is not offering KB4025398 even without it being in the update pack.

I'd just let it go and see what patch Tuesday brings. Maybe a new KB with both the exe and dll?

Another weird MS action...

KB4025398 was released containing msinfo32.exe ONLY and is included in this pack.

That file has disappeared from MS Catalog and is replaced by the same KB # dated Aug 28, 2017 but contains msinfo.dll ONLY.
