Hi everyone,

im working on a script that creates a file named xxxxx0.csv, and if already exists then name it xxxxx1.csv and so on.

problem is the loop freezes every time.. :)

here is the code:

$num = 0
$name = @ComputerName & "_perfmon_" & $num
$path = '"C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv"'

Do
    sleep(50)
    $num += 1

    $name = @ComputerName & "_perfmon_" & $num ;redundant? i try without this two lines anyways
    $path = '"C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv"'

Until not FileExists($path)

rest of the code..

i also try with While

$num = 0
$name = @ComputerName & "_perfmon_" & $num
$path = '"C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv"'

while 1
    sleep(50)
    If not FileExists($path) Then
        ExitLoop
    Else        
        $num += 1
        $name = $computername & "_perfmon_" & $num ;same with and without
        $path = '"C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv"' ;same with and without
    EndIf
WEnd

also tried this..

$num = 0
$name = @ComputerName & "_perfmon_" & $num
$path = '"C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv"'
$var = FileExists($path)

While $var = 1
    $num += 1
    $name = @ComputerName & "_perfmon_" & $num
    $path = '"C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv"'
    $var = FileExists($path)
WEnd

When the file does not exist the program works fine but when it does the program freezes.

i try putting a MsgBox right after the while for debugging and it never comes up.. so the program is not looping, just freezing..

any ideas??

thanks!!

Mmm. Try not to include those ["] quotes with FileExists()

$path = '"C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv"'
$path = 'C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv'

Add them when needed. -> Run*()

This line looks wierd to me

$path = '"C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv"'

Try $path = 'C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv'

you are both right also.

thanks for the answers!
