With the FileMove, you put the old name including the path as the first parameter and the new name as the second parameter including its path.

FileMove($files[$i], $newfile)

Something like this.

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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Moved to the appropriate forum, as the AutoIt Technical Discussion forum very clearly states:

Try something like:

#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>

Local $sFolder = "D:\New folder"
Local $aFileList = _FileListToArray($sFolder,"*",1)
For $i = 1 To $aFileList[0]
    ConsoleWrite("FileMove(" & $sFolder & "\" & $aFileList[$i] & ", " & $sFolder & "\" & StringReplace($aFileList[$i], "Rev", "") & ")" & @CRLF)
;~  Uncomment line below to Rename Files
;~  FileMove($sFolder & "\" & $aFileList[$i], $sFolder & "\" & StringReplace($aFileList[$i], "Rev", ""))
