FileDelete doesn't work

5 posts in this topic

Simple example:

$dir = StringTrimRight(@AutoItExe, 8)
FileChangeDir($dir)
FileInstall("chimes.wav", "chimes_sound.wav")
SoundPlay("chimes_sound.wav")
Sleep(6000)
FileDelete("chimes_sound.wav")
For some reason, it won't delete 'chimes_sound.wav'. Why?

(Chimes.wav can of course be found in C:\Windows\Media)

This works for me.

Const $AUTOITDIR = _AutoItDir()

If FileChangeDir($AUTOITDIR) Then
    FileInstall('chimes.wav', 'chimes_sound.wav')
    SoundPlay('chimes_sound.wav')
    Sleep(6000)
    SoundPlay('')
    If FileDelete('chimes_sound.wav') Then
        MsgBox(0, @ScriptName, 'FileDelete Successful')
    EndIf
EndIf

Exit

Func _AutoItDir()
    Return StringLeft(@AutoItExe, StringInStr(@AutoItExe, '\', 0, -1)-1)
EndFunc

Seems like your perhaps leaving a handle open on the wav file which locks it, so the FileDelete() fails. Calling SoundPlay() again with a empty string parameter tends to close the handle and FileDelete() succeeds.

If you do set the optional wait parameter to 1 for SoundPlay(), then it seems to close the handle upon return of the function call so FileDelete() succeeds.

:P

HI,

problem is your SoundPlay() the the flag to wait until the sound is done.

The first line is also ... :nuke::P ...

Have a look

$dir = StringTrimRight(@AutoItExe, 8)
MsgBox(0,"",$dir)
ConsoleWrite("FCD: " & FileChangeDir($dir)) ; 1 success
ConsoleWrite("FI: " & FileInstall(@WindowsDir & "\Media\chimes.wav", @ScriptDir & "\chimes_sound.wav", 1)) ; 1 success
SoundPlay("chimes_sound.wav", 1)
If FileExists(@ScriptDir & "\chimes_sound.wav") Then ConsoleWrite("FD: " & FileDelete(@ScriptDir & "\chimes_sound.wav")) ; 1 succes

So long,
