'  This example will create a bucket in Google Cloud Storage.
Dim success As Boolean

'  It requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
'  See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

'  See Get Access Token using a Service Account JSON Key

'  The only required property is the "name", but we'll add more
'  to make a better example..
