DirCreate fails on network

9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I have reduced my code until it contains just one line because of this issue, the line is:

DirCreate ("g:Test")

The problem is this only works if I have never used that folder name before i.e. it has never existed. It will work if I use that command to create say Test3 folder but if I delete that folder and then run the line again it will not do anything. But change it to create Test4 and again it will be fine. It also happens with other functions as well - is there a setting on my individual PC or is it because it is on a network share that I am trying to create and delete the folders? I know this will be something obvious for someone that uses it!

You're missing a backslash.

Sorry that was a typo in the post, it does have a backslash and runs fine. Just will only allow me to create each folder once no matter if they have been deleted?

Network rights issue?

What error is returned by DirCreate()?

slagwellies,

It works perfectly for me on my local machine - perhaps someone on a network can throw some light on your problem. :)

I have also altered the title of the thread. I always get a trifle annoyed when new forum members use the "b" word straight off the bat - how likely do you think it is that such an obvious problem would have lain unnoticed for so long? Plus the new title might attract more network users. ;)

Local $cDir = "c:\test"

Test()

$cDir = "z:\test"

Test()

Func Test()
ConsoleWrite("Directory - " & $cDir & @CRLF)
$result = DirCreate ($cDir)
ConsoleWrite("Result of DirCreate - " & $result & @CRLF)
$result = DirRemove ($cDir)
ConsoleWrite("Result of DirRemove - " & $result & @CRLF)
$result = DirCreate ($cDir)
ConsoleWrite("Result of DirCreate - " & $result & @CRLF)
EndFunc

Yields the following for me:

Directory - c:\test
Result of DirCreate - 1
Result of DirRemove - 1
Result of DirCreate - 1
Directory - z:\test
Result of DirCreate - 1
Result of DirRemove - 1
Result of DirCreate - 1

Must be something specific to your network.

Thank you for putting the code, it helped me find the problem - me!

Where I had been using the filcopy to put a file into a folder called 'Test' I must have at some point played with it and accidentally created and renamed those files to 'Test' etc with no extension so when I used FileExists() to see if the folder existed it would be positive as the files with that same name do exist. I think this would be why AutoIT would not create the folders as there were files with the same names. I take full responsibility for being a muppet.

PS Thanks for sorting out the title of the thread. Turns out the problem was sat behind the computer..

slagwellies,

Ah, the well-known "chair-keyboard interface" problem! It happens to all of us at times. :D

Glad you solved it. :)
