Microsoft Scripting Runtime #2

8,834 Recognized Expert Expert
This is the 2nd Tip in a series of Tips on the Microsoft Scripting Runtime Library. The 1st Tip related to Drives, while this Tip will concentrate on the Folders (Directories) in your PC and various methods to retrieve information from and how to manipulate them. The code should be self explanatory and basically documents itself. Should there be any questions related to this Topic, please feel free to ask.

To use the Textstream object, I had to set a Reference to the Microsoft Scripting Runtime. This works good with A2000 Is the Scripting Runtime included with A2002 and A2003 so the Reference won't be broken when my app is opened with those versions. Also is the Scripting Runtime included as part of the A2000 Runtime Engine which some of my customers use.

Used VB.NET (on my client PC) to convert VB6 executable to .NET executable. Placed the .exe file on a network drive on my server. From client, ran .NET Wizards "Trust an Assembly" to make the .exe (on the network drive, on the server) "Full Trust." From the client, double-click on the ..exe (on the network drive, on the server) and it runs fine. So far, so good, but... On the server, where I've installed not VB.NET but .NET

With the Scripting Runtime Library, you can retrieve information related to Drives, Folders, Files, and Text Files and set/retrieve certain Attributes of Drives, Folders, Files, and Text Files. Through Methods exposed by this Library, you can also manipulate...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
