system.io.file not found exception

P: 19
Hi,
During file copy, I'm giving the absolute file name. But the compiler says file not found always. Is it a problem in my system or any error in my program.

Yes, I have tried those. The only soln I'v Got, that the code is almost perfect.The problem might be in the system. The Access That I'v used is of unregistered version. While openining, It always asks to register. This might be the cause of all problem. I'v modified the code to copy other files, such as .vb or .txt. It works fine. Thanks for your prompt reply MR. Prasad599. Plz reply me on these thoughts.
