Is this a Rev bug, or what am I missing?

on  makefold what
if there is a folder what then
log "Found existing installation folder " &  what
else
log "Creating installation  folder " & what
create folder what
end if
end makefold


When this block of code executes, the log  shows (obviously) that some 
of the above folders exist, and that others  (MyCompany, for ex.) are 
being created.  However, the install fails  when one of the files cannot 
be copied into one of the supposedly created  folders.  When I go to 
look at what files/folders are on the disk,  "externals", for example. 
was created as a *FILE* instead of a  folder!  I tried deleting these 
files and my own folders (the ones  specific to this program) and 
rerunning the installer, but the same  problem occurs.

What am I missing here?


Short answer looks like you are not trapping unsuccessful create  directory 
commands, relying on a log which is not subject to its success or  failure.
