FileSystemObjec t DeleteFolder Permission Denied

Dear all,

I have a script that creates a FileSystemObjec t to be used for
folder/directory manipulation. What I am trying to do is to search the
drive if folder exist. If it doesn't it creates a new folder, but if
the folder exists it deletes the old folder and creates a new one. The
error refers to the line where I am deleting the folder. Here is my
code:

zip_path = "C:\cd_buil d"

If fso.FolderExist s (zip_path & "\to_Zip") Then
error line -> fso.DeleteFolde r (zip_path & "\to_Zip" )
fso.CreateFolde r (zip_path & "\to_Zip" )
else
fso.CreateFolde r (zip_path & "\to_Zip" )
end if

And this is the error I am getting:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a0046'

Permission denied

I have all the rights (full control) to the folder.

If I am trying to delete the folder in the Windows Explorer it gives
me and error for Sharing Violation. This foder is not used by any
other program, open anywhere else or anything.
I have no idea what is going on!!

Please somebody help me.

Thanks
Katja

Is this folder shared?

Hi Ray,
Yep, the folder is shared.
I tried to close the sessions and stuff as if it was thinking that the
folder was in use but still no joy.
Any other thoughts?

Hi Ray,
Thanks for your reply but it didn't work either. The folder needs to
be shared so that user has read and write access to it.
I think the system somehow thinks that the folder is in use even it is
not.
The user did download the content of the folder just few secs earlier
so maybe there is a way to tell it that it has finished downloading
and then it would allow it to be deleted.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Katja

I'm having intermittent trouble with the Scripting.FileSystemObject. Basically, I'm stress testing my ASP application and using the FSO to output lots of instrumentation/debug information to the same file. About 5 times within a 15 minute stress test, it returns "Permission Denied". I would think that this object is capable of asynchronous file open and writes. Has anyone else seen this issue and been able to resolve it?

The delete method of the FileSystemObject.FileObject does not return a result. If permissions disallow deletion, it will not raise an error. Conversely, if the delete method does succeed, a call to FileExists directly afterward may return true because the system hasn't updated yet (or whatever actually goes on). Is there any way to accurately check the result of a deletion?
