Having Problems with FileMove and DirCreate Functions

5 posts in this topic

I recently installed Autoit...used to use it about 5 years ago, but I am having an issue.

OS: Windows 7 Home Edition 64bit

I am not getting either DirCreate of FileMove functions to actually make a directory.

I have verified my array information I am passing and even hardcoded it. I do not get an error when I test it just does not actually do it. I am running #requireadmin so I would not think its admin priv. issue. I even hardcoded...see below. Any suggestions.

Note: C:\testfolder\testfile.txt was created ahead of running this script.

$thisfolder = "C:\testfolder"
$thisfile = "testfile.txt"

FileMove ( $thisfolder & $thisfile, $thisfolder & StringTrimRight($thisfile,4) & "\" & $thisfile,8)

"" is missing. Try:

$thisfolder = "C:testfolder"
$thisfile = "testfile.txt"
FileMove ( $thisfolder & $thisfile, $thisfolder & StringTrimRight($thisfile,4) & "" & $thisfile,8)

Unfortunately what was just a forum typo. If I used direct coding, it still will not create the folder and move the file.

FileMove( "C:testfoldertestfile.txt" , "C:testfoldertestfiletestfile.txt", 8 )

Can you create the target directory manually? If yes, can you move the file manually?

Actually I first did create the folder and the file manually as to test my coding as I was doing it. Just seems odd to me. I do not think its an autoit issue, so I am at a loss.
