Script Locking Dirs for Deletion

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I would like to know what am I doing wrong in here. First of all script is made to be used with total commander and its manual drop down menu. I am using it to easier play movies and tv series from my hard drive, exit from player and if I dont like them to delete them. Problem is that when I play a folder it somehow get locked (and all previous folders). Only when i exit script they can be deleted. Now, I need to make something clear in here.

- I am playing video files that are packed in multi volumes. (vlc supports that kind of play so its enough to start "vlc.exe e:0autoitsomemovieinside.rar" and it will play the file. This is just to explain what script has to do, has nothing to do with failure of a script.

- I am using TOTAL COMMANDER feature to copy full path to a file we want to play in vlc player. It wont work on your system just consider that $line contains full path to a file which in this case should be "e:0autoitsomemovieinside.rar"

- I am running win XP SP3

I hope I explained my problem well. I guess its just a little something but I am not that experienced to get aware what it is. Did try to find it on forum but not much luck. I even did try some unlock scripts from a forum and real applications for unlocking but not much luck. Thanks in advance.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT:

Just to add, all files inside folder are deleted but folder itself aint (in this case e:0autoit)...

#include <string.au3>
#include <file.au3>
HotKeySet("^{F12}", "escape")
HotKeySet("{F1}", "play")
HotKeySet("{F2}", "close")
HotKeySet("{F3}", "del")
GUISetIcon("vlc.ico")
TraySetIcon("vlc.ico",-1)
Global $line
Global $path

Do
Sleep(2000)
Until 2 = 12
Exit

Func play()
Send("!s") ; opens a S&tart menu from total commander (custom made start menu by end user - me)
Sleep(100)
Send("f") ; starts a command that will take full path and directory from total commander where pointer shows and put it in a clipboard
Sleep(100)
$path=ClipGet()  ; path to a dir which has .rar file to be played, for example "e:\0\autoit\"
$dir = FileFindFirstFile($path & "*.rar")  
$file = FileFindNextFile($dir) ; find first file inside selected dir (in this case "somemovieinside.rar")
$line=("e:\Sys\Prg\vlc\vlc.exe " & $path & $file) ; pack whole info of a file to be played ready for vlc.exe player
SplashTextOn("",$line,(@DesktopWidth),56,-1,(@DesktopHeight - 120),1,"Verdana",10,600)
Run($line) ; start vlc player with full path to the file that we want to play
Sleep(2000)
SplashOff()
EndFunc

Func close() ; this func closes video player
Send("!{F4}")
Sleep(100)
FileClose($line)
EndFunc


Func del() ; this func should delete whole folder that contains a movie with files. it do delete files but not a folder. it stays locked until script is closed.
ProcessClose("vlc.exe")  ; this is extra, i was thinking vlc is locking files but it aint
ProcessWaitClose("vlc.exe"); this is extra, i was thinking vlc is locking files but it aint
SplashTextOn("DELETING",$path,(@DesktopWidth),56,-1,(@DesktopHeight - 120),1,"Verdana",10,600)
;DirRemove($path,1) <------------------------------ I put this to sleep so if someone run it not to delete half of drive or so
Sleep(1500)
SplashOff()
Sleep(100)
EndFunc


Func escape()
Exit
EndFunc

Fr33b0w,

You do not appear to be closing the search handle returned from the FileFindFirstFile call (as the Help file says you should). Try doing so and see if that solves the problem. :)

I was short and quick on answer because I jumped on sorting my video files. It works, it works... it works!
