Hi, i've been trying to create a script so that you type in the name of a folder in a input and then you press a button to go into the folder that you put the name of in input and then copy a specific file in there and then paste it inside of another folder.

But i'm having a problem - I type in the exact name of a folder and it doesnt work, here it is

$FolderName = GuiCtrlRead($Input1)

FileCopy("C:UsersAustin LayneAppDataRoamingNoobNoobSo"&$ClientName&"example.jar"

But if i do it like this without the input... it works

$ClientName = GuiCtrlRead($Input1)

FileCopy("C:UsersAustin FroobAppDataRoamingNoobNoobSoexample.jar"

-Also i didnt add where i was going to paste the file at because it wasnt nessassary

Your first example uses $FolderName in the GUICtrlRead, and $ClientName in the FileCopy. Your second example uses $ClientName in the GUICtrlRead line, so maybe you're using the wrong variable names?

Also, please don't put some many line breaks in between sentences, there's no need.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Where are you copying the file(s) to? If it's a protected folder area, that could be one reason it's not copying them. Another reason might be that you're trying to copy from the wrong place in the first example, or the wrong file name, because the 2 examples you posted are pointing to 2 different locations/filenames.
