I have a question with regards to FileOpen.

Given:

  • A text file @MyDocumentsDir & "\book keeper\logs\logs.txt" is used by another app; but I can open and read it.
  • $FileHandle = FileOpen(@MyDocumentsDir & "\book keeper\logs\logs.txt")
  • The code was successfully executed.

something happened afterwards:

logs.txt was renamed and a new logs.txt was created, or simply deleted

a: Will $FileHandle still point to the renamed file? or

b: Will $FileHandle point to the new logs.txt file? or

c: Will $FileHandle point to nothing at all?

Windows won't allow this as long as there is a program with a open handle to a file... Option C is probably your best bet if you force the operation.
