This is the 3rd in a series of Tips dealing specifically with the Microsoft Scripting Runtime Library. In this Tip, we'll show you how to return specific Properties relating to Files, as well as various Methods to Copy, Move, and Delete them. The code is self explanatory, so I'll jump right in:

  23. 'To Copy a File (Copy C:\Windows\System32\Calc.exe ==> C:\Dell\Copy.exe)
  24. fil.Copy ("C:\Dell\Copy.exe")       'OR
  25. fso.CopyFile "C:\Windows\System32\Calc.exe", "C:\Dell\Copy.exe", True
  27. 'To Delete a File (C:\Dell\IP.txt)

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.

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
