_filecreate Makes File In Use?

5 posts in this topic

When I create a .txt file using _FileCreate and then try to delete it using FileDelete it won't delete.

If I try to delete it manually with the script running it will display the file is in use by a person or another program.

Once I close the script I can delete it.

I even tried using FileClose after using _FileCreate but it still doesn't delete it and displays the file in use message when I try to also manually delete.

does _filecreate() return an @error ?

Msgbox(0,"",@error) displayed 0.

Which means no error im guessing.

@Error: 0 = No error.

Hi,

works for me. Try this...

#include<file.au3>

MsgBox(0,"",_FileCreate("c:\test.txt"))
for $i = 0 To 1
    MsgBox(0,$i,FileDelete("c:\test.txt"))
Next

So long,

Mega

Ah! I found the problem.

It seems the way I was using FileOpen caused it.

I was doing this.

FileOpen($file,1)

...

FileClose($file)

I changed it to

$f = FileOpen($file,1)

...

FileClose($f)

It seemed to have fixed it.
