Default File System Object

Hi,
I am using VB 6 to generate a configuration file.
I have to copy this file to different machines in the n/w, and for the same i am using
fso.CopyFile "d:\sms\sample.ccr", strLoc & "sample.ccr" line where sample.ccr is a file name and strloc contains the path
e.g. \\16.112.30.2\c$\temp

But this is not working i already checked for permissions in those PC, rather i am using this from administrator login who has all permission for those PC's.
I need urgent help.

Any body....plz....

fso.CopyFile "d:\sms\sample.ccr", strLoc & "sample.ccr"

You are missing the last path "\"

fso.CopyFile "d:\sms\sample.ccr", strLoc & "\sample.ccr"

Hope this helps you

Sorry, actually that was a typo in forum text, i am using it as
strLoc = "\\pai820smspag01\cap_all\ccr.box\"

and then fso.CopyFile "d:\sms\sample.ccr", strLoc & "sample.ccr".

I have also tried with
fso.CopyFile "d:\sms\sample.ccr", "\\pai820smspag01\cap_all\ccr.box\sample.ccr".

Looking for your help....

Hi,
In my application i am simply using this line
fso.CopyFile "d:\sms\sample.ccr", strLoc & "sample.ccr"

If i am writing like this strloc="d:\" then its working perfectly and copying file into local D drive but when i am putting strloc="\\pai820smspag01\cap_all\ccr.box\sample.cc r", nither its showing any error msg nor copying the file at the said location.
I am using this program from admin login and have checked for all permissions.

Can this be caused by the fact that in your second example, strLoc doesn't hold a foldername, but a file and foldername?

The admin account in your computer may be not an administator for the remote server. FSO is picky about it, read this:
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;EN-US;197964
The bad with SFO is that does not throw any errors, just abort the operation on the first error (I just checked it)
Did you try to shell the command?
Shell "copy " & srcFile & " " & dstFile?
Did you try the CopyFIle API (at least that gives yoy an error code...

Hi,

Answer for Imar's:

When i specified filename together with foldername i passed only strloc without the file name in quotes.
When i used strloc actual implemented code is like this

strLoc = "\\pai820smspag01\cap_all\ccr.box\"
fso.CopyFile "d:\sms\sample.ccr", strLoc & "sample.ccr".

When i tried without strloc, its like this only
fso.CopyFile "d:\sms\sample.ccr", "\\pai820smspag01\cap_all\ccr.box\sample.ccr".


Answer for marcostraf:

No ihaven't used shell and API in my code till now, thanks for suggestion. i hope this will work.

Rajesh.
