SetDirectory with mathlink

Hallo,
I have the following problem:
I write a program in C and use Mathematica via MathLink. I try to send
the command 'SetDirectory["C:\\Programme"]' to Mathematica via an
EnterTextPacket. I think the problem are the quotation marks. Of course
when I type in

MLPutString( link, "SetDirectory["C:\\Programme"]");

the program  cannot be built. So I use the escape sequence ' \ ':

MLPutFunction( link, "EnterTextPacket", 1); MLPutString( link,
"SetDirectory[\"C:\\Programme\"]"); MLEndPacket( link);

Unfortunately this doesn't work either. What is wrong?
Thank you
                                                            Witold
