NicePerson,

Works fine for me. Can you rename the folder manually? :)

I can think of a few reasons, in order from most, to least probable:

Is this script in a folder? There seems to be a bug with @ScriptDir where it will add a trailing "\" when it is run from the root of a drive, while it doesn't when it is in a folder. This can result in invalid filepaths.

Try this to see if the filepaths are correct.

ConsoleWrite(@ScriptDir&"\New Folder" & @CRLF & @ScriptDir & "\1-36-26 PM, 29 March, 2011" & @CRLF)

Try adding #RequireAdmin to your script, so you will have the proper rights to change the folder.

Just to make sure it's not a problem with the name. (path being too long for instance) try renaming to something simple to see if that works.

I had another suggestion, but I forgot it while writing this. :)

Path seems to be correct:

>"C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\AutoIt3Wrapper\AutoIt3Wrapper.exe" /run /prod /ErrorStdOut /in "E:\AutoIt\DirMove.au3" /autoit3dir "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3" /UserParams

I also tried #RequireAdmin but not worked..

Then I don't know, unless it's something silly, like (a file in) the folder being in use, a folder with the destination name already existing, or an incorrect source path, I wouldn't know what could cause this to fail.

A test on my machine with the exect same path worked flawlessly.

Another possibility ..

You cannot move or rename a folder, if a file is in use from that same folder.

If you want to continue receiving help around here I would advice you to edit your last post to something less hot headed. Posts like that are not appreciated. Try and be the NicePerson you claim to be.

There is nothing wrong with DirMove() so it has to be one of the access permission issues on your PC that other have suggested.

Run this and post the output.

$result = DirCreate(@ScriptDir&"\New Folder")
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $result = ' &  $result& @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console

$result = DirMove(@ScriptDir&"\New Folder", @ScriptDir&"\1-36-26 PM, 29 March, 2011",1)
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') :  $result= ' &  $result& @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console

$result = FileExists (@ScriptDir&"\1-36-26 PM, 29 March, 2011")
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $result = ' & $result & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console

Hi,

I have to say that there definitly a bug in dirmove..

Running that give these return :

@@ Debug(55) : $result = 1

>Error code: 0

@@ Debug(58) : $result= 1

>Error code: 0

@@ Debug(61) : $result = 1

>Error code: 0

Thats normal..

But running it multiple time give this result in folder:

1-36-26 PM, 29 March, 2011\New Folder\New Folder

(The last "New Folder" should not exist right !?!)

is there something I dont understand ??

What's happening is that it's moving "New Folder" into the "1-36-26 PM, 29 March, 2011" folder, because that's what the code is telling it to do. The first time you ran it, that folder didn't exist, so it renamed "New Folder" to "1-36-26 PM, 29 March, 2011", the second time, it sees the "1-36-26 PM, 29 March, 2011" folder and moves "New Folder" into it.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

yes but we should only get "1-36-26 PM, 29 March, 2011\New Folder"

Not "1-36-26 PM, 29 March, 2011\New Folder\New Folder"

The overwrite doesnt work and it move the folder inside a "same named" folder instead..

$DirToMove1 = @ScriptDir & "\DirMoveTest\DirToMove1"
$DirToMove2 = @ScriptDir & "\DirMoveTest\DirToOverwrite"
$DirToOverwrite = @ScriptDir & "\DirMoveTest\Result\DirToOverwrite"

$ResultFolder = @ScriptDir & "\DirMoveTest\Result"


DirCreate ($DirToMove1)
FileWriteLine($DirToMove1 & "\File1.txt", "test")
DirCreate ($DirToMove2)
FileWriteLine($DirToMove2 & "\File2.txt", "test")
DirCreate ($DirToOverwrite)


DirMove ($DirToMove1, $ResultFolder,1)
DirMove ($DirToMove2, $ResultFolder,1)

with this example I should get as Result :

File1.txt in @ScriptDir & "\DirMoveTest\Result\DirToMove1

and

File2.txt in @ScriptDir & "\DirMoveTest\Result\DirToOverwrite

Instead I get File2.txt in @ScriptDir & "\DirMoveTest\Result\DirToOverwrite\DirToOverwrite

And with the same example, if we use flag 0 then it move nothing..
