File Deletion or Move

Recommended Posts



I have been trying to delete a file by using the following code, I also tried moving the file specified in the commented out line below. The code does not work even if when prompted user credentials high enough to join a domain, and install software are entered.



Opt("WinTextMatchMode", 2) ;1=complete, 2=quick

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) ;1=start, 2=subStr, 3=exact, 4=advanced, -1 to -4=Nocase


Opt("TrayIconHide", 1)


Func Phase1()


;If IsAdmin() Then MsgBox(0, "", "Admin rights detected",2)

RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System","ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin","REG_DWORD", "0")

FileDelete("C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\STARTUP\Math*.*")

FileDelete("C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\STARTUP\*.dotm")


;FileMove("C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\STARTUP\Math Type Commands 6 For Word 2010.dotm", "C:\temp\Math Type Commands 6 For Word 2010.dotm")


Any ideas ?

Did you check file attributes to make sure they were not Read-only? Also, you should check to see which parts error out. (See: @error in the Documentation)

My UDFs are generally for me. If they aren't updated for a while, it means I'm not using them myself. As soon as I start using them again, they'll get updated.
