Path Of .zip file Has Spaces In It / It's Not Recognizing Path As Valid Path

Aug 22, 2006

I have a Access program and I'm using VBA code in the background to run Winunzip using shell command. Well, the path of the .zip file has spaces in it and it's not recongizing the path as a valid path. Is there a another way to tackle this problem besides the shell?I can't us pkzip either. Has you can see I had to use progra~1 instead of Program Files.[code]

Access A File Using Relative Path Or Virtual Path?

May 22, 2012

I am trying to read and display a file using MapPath as follows :

Response.ContentType = "Application/pdf"
Dim FilePath As String = MapPath("../Document/123.pdf")
Response.WriteFile(FilePath)
Response.End()

This procedure will work fine and display in the browser. However, if I save the file to C:Document123.pdf, how can I access this file using relative path in MapPath function. Is there an option to access the file which is saved out of IIS server? I am using vb.net 2003.

Convert Unix File Path To Windows Path?

Jun 14, 2012

I'm using acrobat that returns unix paths instead of windows path's. So im wondering if there is a way in vb.net to convert the path to windows path.

i tried using:

docs(i) = javaScriptObj.path().ToString.Replace("/", "").Substring(1)
position = docs(i).IndexOf("")
docs(i) = docs(i).Substring(0, position) + ":" + docs(i).Substring(position + 1)

this only works on local files, but fails when im starting to use network drives.

Interface And Graphics :: Drawing Dotted Path Lines, With Even Dots Along The Path Line?

Apr 13, 2012

Problem drawing dotted path lines, with even dots along the path line.I want to draw a path line that can be any shape (square, round, outline etc), and along this path line I want even dots to appear.

I also want to be able to resize the shape (as in the example attached)This is very easy to do using "DrawPath" and defining points for the path and using a pen defined as dots.The problem I have is I want the dots to be evenly placed along the path, on any shape or size I draw.In the example I have created, I create a square with 4 points and draw a dotted path.There are 2 buttons that allows me to resize the square (larger or smaller) this helps show the problem more clearly.

The path starts at the top left corner and finishes back at the top left corner, the dots are evenly placed along the path, except the final dots at the end of the path. (Sometimes the dots are even and other times they are not even).The shapes I want to draw can be any size and any shape, but I have used a square in this example to show the problem I have. point me in the direction I need to go that allows me to draw the dots and give the impression that they are even all along the path, for all shapes and sizes.

In the pictures below if you change the size of the shape, one will have even looking dots, the other will not.

DB/Reporting :: Error Access To The Path "PATH HERE" Is Denied

Jul 25, 2008

when i try to write to a file I get the error:

Quote:

Access to the path "PATH HERE" is denied. Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path "PATH HERE" is denied.

ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider granting access rights to the resource to the ASP.NET request identity. ASP.NET has a base process identity (typically {MACHINE}ASPNET on IIS 5 or Network Service on IIS 6) that is used if the application is not impersonating. If the application is impersonating via <identity impersonate="true"/>, the identity will be the anonymous user (typically IUSR_MACHINENAME) or the authenticated request user. To grant ASP.NET write access to a file, right-click the file in Explorer, choose "Properties" and select the Security tab. Click "Add" to add the appropriate user or group. Highlight the ASP.NET account, and check the boxes for the desired access.But when I add: <identity impersonate="true"/ to web.config I get the following error when my application trys to open a DB to read it:

2010 OleDb Text Connection String: "Not Valid Path"

Nov 7, 2010

I've been all over the help files and finally patched together a VB OleDb connection string for delimited text files:

Dim connection As String = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & "Data Source=" & fName & ";" & "Extended Properties=""text;HDR=YES;FMT=Delimited"""

"fName" is passed in by an open file dialog.In every case (for all paths) it throws: 'C:1_2010NormalFileNormal.csv' (or where ever it is pointed) is not a valid path.  Make sure that the path name is spelled correctly and that you are connected to the server on which the file resides.Since no path works, it must be a syntax error, but I'll be darned if I can see it.

Full code of this routine is:

Dim connection As String = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & "Data Source=" & fName & ";" & "Extended Properties=""text;HDR=YES;FMT=Delimited"""
Dim conn As New OleDbConnection(connection)

ASP.NET Setting A Path For File With VB?

May 30, 2011

So this is a pretty dumb question, and one I am clearly misunderstanding for whatever the reason. I have an ASP.net project and the default aspx page loads a file. I made a class to deal with file handling, in it I hard coded the local directory to where that file is. I want to make that path relative to the default.aspx page. I can't figure out how to do that. I have read a lot of stuff on MSDN, and it makes simple sense, but when I put it to code I can't seem to get it right.

I feel my answer is here, I understand what it is saying but I can't translate that to my program.[URL] Code such as

Dim rootPath As String = Server.MapPath("~")

makes sense to me but I can't use 'Server' for some reason.

I have used this spot of code to supplement my problem for now.

string=System.AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory()
