  • Folder Does Exist, File Copy code check please

    Hi All
    Can someone check my code please
    I want to add a folder and a file if exist's.
    The code below Creates a folder but don't copy the file to that folder, the folder is empty.

    The GameList.db file is located at Autoplay Docs.


    Code:
    if Folder.DoesExist("C:\\My Games") then
      File.Copy("\\AutoPlay\\Docs\\GameList.db", "C:\\My Games", true, true, false, true, nil);
    else
     Folder.Create("C:\\My Games");
    end

    "\\AutoPlay\\Docs\\GameList.db" should be "AutoPlay\\Docs\\GameList.db" but do use application get last error as it would tell you the file does not exist.

      Thanks Shrek
      Is this how it goes for the application get last error
      because it creates the folder but no file added

      Code:
      -- Check to see if a specific folder exists.
      if Folder.DoesExist("C:\\My Games") then
        File.Copy("\\AutoPlay\\Docs\\GameList.db", "C:\\My Games", true, true, false, true, nil);
      else
       Folder.Create("C:\\My Games");
      end
      
      
      --Check to see if an error occurred.
      error = Application.GetLastError();
      
      -- If an error occurred, display the error message.
      if (error ~= 0) then
          Dialog.Message("Error", _tblErrorMessages[error], MB_OK, MB_ICONEXCLAMATION);
      end

          if (err ~= 0) then
            Dialog.Message("Error", _tblErrorMessages[err].."\r\n".."AutoPlay\\Docs\\GameList.db", MB_OK, MB_ICONEXCLAMATION);
          end
        else
         Folder.Create("C:\\My Games");
        end
        try the _SourceFolder variable instead if that don't work.

          Also make a check the file is in the folder before coping

            Hi All
            Thanks for the help

            This has now been fixed. I used this code

            Code:
            if not Folder.DoesExist("C:\\My Games")then
              Folder.Create("C:\\My Games");
            end
            File.Copy("\\AutoPlay\\Docs\\GameList.db", "C:\\My Games", true, true, false, true, nil);
