MODEL BUILDER: CREATING NEW FOLDER IN MODEL PREVENTS REST OF MODEL FROM RUNNING

Hello everyone,

I want to create a model in which 1) a new folder is created on the C drive and 2) various new layers are created and saved into this folder. When I create the model and run it in the edit window (via "validate entire model" and then "run") everything works fine. However, when I attempt to the run the model directly from Arctoolbox (by double clicking the model name) the model doesn't run. I get an error message stating that the new folder doesn't exist...thus there is no where to save the layers to.

Is there a way around this? Specifically, can I force the model to run even though the folders are not present at the outset (since the first thing the model does is create these necessary folders)?

Thank you,
