So you will give million dollars who answers this question and a kick to Bill Gates for keeping this Bug alive for so many years without the knowledge to solve it?

Do read it completely and stop spreading such rumors.
If you don't like Windows, stop using it :)

And yes, My 1 Million Dollars, how are you willing to give it to me.
I accept Cash and Card both :lol:

LPT = Line Print Terminal [See : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LPT]
And, we CAN create folder with name LPT (try it).
We can NOT create folder with name LPTN, where N is a number in range 0~9.

I think you did not read the article completely. You can create those folders in windows.

LPT is for printer ports.
if you have installed any printer, select properties and go to Ports tab.

It's not a bug, CON LPTx and the other names all have specific meanings under DOS and you cannot create files with those names (why would you want to anyway). They are hooks into other functionality than just creating simple files.

The story is similar under Unix; if you try to create a file called /dev/null you won't get very far.
