Create a text file on a network path using C#


I'm new to C# and I'm developeing a utility which creates a text file and populates it with registry key values.

It works fine on a local path, but with absolute path, it throws an error that "Access to the path .... is deined". Code is given below.

StreamWriter SW1;
FileIOPermission myPerm = new FileIOPermission(FileIOPermissionAccess.Write, "\\\\\\Shared");
//new FileIOPermission(FileIOPermissionAccess.Write, finfo.Directory.FullName).Demand();
SW1 = File.CreateText("\\\\\\Shared");

I understand that there is something more that needs to be done for solving this,
if anyout out there knows the solution, please send me the steps and I can proceed. Or a clue also would be sufficient.

Do you have user rights to create files on that directory?

Also I noticed this line:

This will ALWAYS fail. You cannot create a text file in a root directory, you would need to do like:
File.CreateText("\\\\\\SomeShareName \\Shared");

Hi Plater,

Simple mistake did me in, that was the cause of the issue, I had introduced the FileIOPermission line and assert line, but overlooked the filecreate part.
Now its working fine.

Thanks a lot.
