Filecopy failed when file is in use.

3 posts in this topic

hello all. i have this compiled script and i put a function like UPDATE. this function will copy and overwrite the new files, icons and as well the new compiled exe. when i run the script, filecopy failed to copy the new files when the compiled script is still running. is there a way to copy or forced the Filecopy operation while it is still being used?

Not if the files are in use (I think)

You should consider a separate "updater" script

yap i mean not the files in use but the compiled exe instead. yeah i am thinking to separate the update but it is only a filecopy operation that i want to include in the whole script. i am thinking like this in the update script...

$PID = ProcessExists("compile.exe") 
If $PID Then 
 ProcessClose($PID)
FileCopy($source, @systemdir, 1)
Run(@systemdir & "\compile.exe)
EndIf

But I never get past the FileCopy because process of the compiled exe has been closed before filecopy will be executed...
