I've encountered a problem with a single file where I cannot retrieve it's Date-time. So far my code has worked well for over 30 files, but this one is a mystery I cannot debug myself due to insufficient Au3 knowledge.
In line 11 "_Date_Time_FileTimeToArray" is called and for this particular file it sets the @error to 10. I don't know what that error code means, but it's not set by the _Date functions themselves I think.
Overall, it could be a problem caused by any of the functions below, how can I properly debug this? / Does anybody know a what's causing this?
_WinAPI_CreateFile() / _Date_Time_GetFileTime() / _Date_Time_FileTimeToArray()
Func _SetFileTimes($sFilePath) Local $monthNumber = ["", "January", "February", "March", "April", "May", "Juny", "July", "August", "September", "October", "November", "December"] Local $dayNumber = ["Sunday", "Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday", "Saturday"] Local $fHandle = _WinAPI_CreateFile($sFilePath, 2, 2) ; read-only ; may NOT return a valid date for some reason! TODO Local $fTagFILETIME = _Date_Time_GetFileTime($fHandle) _WinAPI_CloseHandle($fHandle) ; This will return an empty array if theres no valid date $fModTime = _Date_Time_FileTimeToArray($fTagFILETIME) ; last Modified if @error <> 10 then Local $year = $fModTime Local $month = $fModTime Local $day = $fModTime Local $hour = $fModTime Local $min = $fModTime Local $sec = $fModTime Local $ms = $fModTime Local $weekday = $fModTime Global $prettyTimestamp = StringFormat("%s, %s %d, %04d %02d:%02d:%02d", $dayNumber[$weekday], $monthNumber[$month], $day, $year, $hour, $min, $sec) Global $uploadDate = StringFormat("%04d-%02d-%02d", $year, $month, $day) $fModTime = _Date_Time_FileTimeToArray(_Date_Time_FileTimeToLocalFileTime($fTagFILETIME)) ; last Modified Local $year = $fModTime Local $month = $fModTime Local $day = $fModTime Local $hour = $fModTime Local $min = $fModTime Local $sec = $fModTime Local $ms = $fModTime Local $weekday = $fModTime ; GetUnixTime accounts for Local time, hence feed it local time Global $unixTimestamp = _GetUnixTime($year &"/"& $month &"/"& $day &" "& $hour&":"& $min &":"& $sec) else Global $prettyTimestamp = "N/A" Global $uploadDate = "" Global $unixTimestamp = "N/A" endif endfunc
_GetUnixTime returned the year 1601 start date, showing that $fModTime is probably equal 0. (But Why?)
The file reports these dates in Explorer, it's on local NTFS drive:

Hi, for a script of mine, I wish to keep a time frame on till how the program will work.. basically, I want the program to read the date and if the read date < 'a particular date', the program continues, else it exit. I don't want to read the time from the computer as the program can be fooled by resetting the pc time. is there a way to read time from internet - so that the user cannot fool the program by date reset? thanks
I have a query please
It is about windows file explorer
If i design a tool in autoit language to delete files for example
and i added it in the context menu in File Explorer
If i right-click on any file And you choose the tool, it will be get the path of the selected file or folder
The problem here is
If i select a set of files or folders
it only detect the first one
The code that i used is
if $CMDLine = 0 then
msgBox(16, "error", "you don't selecte any files")
for $i = 1 to $CMDLine
msgBox(0, "files", $CMDLine[$i]
Just a simple little (complex enough) program I whipped up, for a purpose ... but only too happy to share.
It can of course be modified to do more, but at the moment just compares file names with or without path ... Location versus Checklist.
There are of course other compare programs out there, most doing a lot more than mine (i.e. WinMerge or FileComparer). But I wanted something quick and simple with drag & drop, that uses up a smallish amount of screen real estate.
NOTE - The SAVE button is also a LOAD one, and displays 'Load' when the list is empty. So you can save and load specific lists. While in SAVE mode, the button can also be used with CTRL held down, to ADD another list to existing (displayed one) ... combining as they say ... though not saved until you SAVE. CLEAR button removes a selected entry, or if used with CTRL held down, queries about removing all listed entries.
Files Checklist v1.2.zip
Files Checklist v1.3.zip
Files Checklist v1.4.zip (Includes a BUGFIX.)
WARNING - While this program does not act on files or folders ADDED or CHECKED, you might act on the results, so I advise caution, and I also recommend using the new 'Relative' option in v1.3 or newer ... but you still need to understand what you are doing and what the results actually mean. Some basic examples in the next post.
Users might also be interested in another somewhat related program of mine.
I Have clicked on save as option to save a file, while doing that I need to rename a file appending with sysdate. I have searched in google find the below one line of code:
FileMove("C:\somefile.txt", "C:\somefile1.txt"), When I am trying to append with sysdate. It is not happening. Please help me out with the small issue.
