RE: How to create file on c:\
Short answer: yes.

Long answer: but unless your application is an administrative application
doing so is a really bad idea and would, by definition, make your app
non-Vista compliant. Your app should be writing either into the user's data
directory or into some application specific directory under C:\ProgramData.
