And in this case the OP still needs to do an extra check
(try..except), so basically this does not solve his "problem" because
it is unsolvable without the programmer checking/validating what
GetAppConfigDir did.

function GetAppConfigDir(Global: Boolean; ForceCreate: Boolean;
WhatToDoIfCreationFails: TProcedure) would "solve" the original
problem ;-)
