Can't get "Dirremove" work recursiv

Recommended Posts

Hi,

i have some problems with deleting a folder.

This Folder and its context isn't writeprotected - but I can't delete it at all...

If i run it I get the error: "Delete not succesful!"

If I want to delete an subdirectory - it works - (if no other directory is in it...)

By the way - then I tried filedelete("C:\Programme\AutoIt3\Examples\eigen\*.*")

It doesn't work.

What is my mistake?

Many thanks...

Some dir attributes can make the removal impossible. Like a read-only flag.

Can you delete the directory and its subfolders manually?

dost0011,

Your code works fine for me in another drive. My bet is that the OS is preventing you from changing anything in C:\Programme - my Vista machine usually asks for admin rights to do anything in C:\Program Files. Perhaps if you try #requireadmin?

Thanks for the quick answer.

I have WinXP + Admin

I can delete it with the explorer.

Caution: DirRemove works fine, if no Subdirectory exists...

I don't know, whats wrong...

@Manadar: the files and subdirectories are NOT Readonly

Hi,

can't reproduce. I have XP SP 3 + Admin as well. No error. Directory is deleted with subdirectories.

Be sure that no program is acessing directory or subdiretories, e.g. explorer or SCITE Editor with an open script.

If nothing seems to be wrong, just do a reboot and check again........

Thanks. That's it. One Reboot and everything works fine. I love Windows :-)
