Copy file to a hidden folder

4 posts in this topic

I am trying to copy file from our server to the startup foler on a windows 7 machine. I created a simple exe file to click and the file copies. I found that the file will not copy due to the ProgramData folder being hidden. Is there a way to copy a file to a hidden folder.

FileCopy("\\Servernamel\common\apps\AutoPLANT\V8i\Master\V8i_Start\DTG AutoPLANT V8i.exe", "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup" ,"/H")

Your syntax is a problem. You either need a trailing backslash on the target or you need to specify a file name for the target. And what is up with the "/H" flag? You can have either 1,2,8, or the sum of their combinations.

As was suggested in the above post you need a trailing slash

FileCopy("mgtsrvSourcePerformanceProPerformance Pro.lnk", "C:UsersPublicDesktop", 9)
