Handling Unauthorized-access Exceptions When Searching Folders

May 18, 2010

If any directory within a set being searched by the [URL] or [URL] methods contains a junction point, the entire method fails and returns zero results on my tests under VB 2008. I would like to make the call more robust: to return the folders or files not blocked by access restrictions and to note the folders which were blocked. Do those methods offer a means to do this, or is a recursive folder-by-folder call necessary?


Program Searcher / Access Is Denied Searching Some Folders

Oct 3, 2010

My current project is to search the computer for exe files, I managed to do that easily with a for...each statement. It ran well, but it came to a adminstrator folder, then it said "Access Denied".I understand that you cant access these folders, but i was wondering how to exclude certain directories that the user can't access, like UAC or something.[code]

Handling Exceptions Within Custom Functions

Jun 2, 2009

All of us use the try catch blocks. But what is the best way of handling errors within custom functions?Display a messagebox to the user when the exception is thrown (if possible within the function), or return a value indicating that an error was found within the function?

Handling Task Factory Exceptions?

Apr 18, 2011

I have set up a process to create new tasks to handle file processing. A problem arised where I received and unhandled exception error and just clicking on the continue button, the main process continued to run. Now I also found that within the child task I was having a file conflict error and as the tasks run as separate .exe i was under the impression that everything would have been thread safe. So for the first issue here is the task creation in the main process..GProcess is a complete project on its own consisting of 6 classes. This is added as a class library reference to the main process class form1

Public Class Form1
..Private parser as GProcess.module = new GProcess.module()
dim factory as new taskfactory

VS 2010 : Handling Unhandled Exceptions In A DLL?

Aug 29, 2011

How does one handle unhandled exceptions in a DLL? VS doesn't give me the option to add Application Events, I'm guessing because it's a DLL. Do I just have to do it in the main app?

Assigning Consecutive Properties While Handling Exceptions?

Sep 29, 2010

This was a difficult question to google. I have an Order class with a couple of dozen properties such as ClientReference, ShipMethod, etc. I use databinding to bind this class to an Order form. If a user enters an invalid shipping method, an exception is raised in the ShipMethod property and a validation error is displayed to the user. But I'm trying to use the same Order class within an OrderImport class whose job it is to take a flat file and create multiple orders. The problem occurs if I'm assigning to a dozen of the order fields consecutively, and say the first one causes a validation exception. If I have all dozen assignments occuring within a single try-catch block, the next 11 assignments will be skipped and I'll only be able to record one validation error. I could solve the problem by doing a dozen separate try-catch statements, but that doesn't seem very elegant.

Handling Exceptions With A Specific Error Code Condition?

Apr 28, 2012

When two computers are connected through TCP, and one of them closes and breaks the connection, it throws error 10054 "Remote host forcibly closed the connection".I want to handle this error because I know it will happen more often than not with the application I'm building. In System.Net.Sockets.SocketException, there is an on the error code. But when I run the program, the exception that is being thrown is System.IO.IOException, and the GetType for IOException is the socket exception. I don't know how to handle the socket exception if it's not the root cause of the exception.

Here is the code for my Try Catch block:
For infiniteCounter = 1 To 2
infiniteCounter = 1

VS 2008 Handling Exceptions In Custom Control Library

Oct 21, 2009

So I've made this control that inherits from the treeview control and basically loads objects from active directory into a treeview (url...).All working fine, but as this is the first custom control I have made that I have intended for other people to use, I'm not quite sure how I should approach error handling.I mean, obviously I shouldnt do something like show any exceptions in a messagebox because that might not be what the person that is using the control wants to happen. So do I just write out exception messages to the debug window? Do I swallow exceptions (guessing not)? Do I just totally ignore them so that they are thrown in the user's project?

VS 2008 Handling Exceptions In Referenced Class Libraries

Jun 8, 2010

i created a Class library (.dll) and loaded it as reference into a main project. In the code for the class i've handled exceptions using try..catch subs, however when debugging the main project exceptions that are handled in the DLL still get thrown! (the class ".vb" file gets loaded into the debugger and the line of the exception shows up)

Up till now i've found it useful that when an unhandled error occurs in the imported reference, it shows up in the main project with tracing back to the referenced class. But i dont want the exceptions that are handled in the reference class to be thrown when debugging the main project!

As you can see the exception thrown was handled with try...catch this class exception.vb belongs to the project that created the class library (.DLL that i referenced). i didnt even load the project that built the reference so it amazes me that it could find the coding class to begin with.

.net - Handling Exceptions In A Class Library Enveloping A Device Driver

Sep 28, 2011

I am writing a class library that envelopes an USB device driver. This device has its own class library, provided by the hardware vendor.

Very often, especially if you handle with old DLL or COM assemblies, there are methods (functions to be correct) that return TRUE if all was OK, or FALSE if any error happen. Often these methods return information about the error in one of their parameters or separately in a GetLastError method or even if in an OnError event.

Now, normally I handle all native .NET exceptions in my class libray handling locally or re-throwing to the client if the error is useful to know. But what to do with all other errors that are hidden in the vendor's methods? (in the true I have no exceptions, but only returned TRUE or FALSE values).

Let's make an example with the method "CONNECT" that connect the client to the USB device.

I envelope the method in this way:

Public Sub Connect()
End Sub

now if any connection error happen, the vendor's connect method return FALSE. But I do not know why the connection failed. To know why the connection failed I have to call (for example) the method GetLastError that gives me information about the error. (but do not forget that other vendors use other strategies like returning the error in a method's parameter or in a OnError events.

Now, in order to follow a good .NET exception handling strategy I could write something like this:

Public Sub Connect()
Dim res As Boolean = oVendorDevice.connect()
If res = False Then

Unauthorized Access Error?

Unauthorized Access Trying To Change Remote Registry On Xp Machines?

May 4, 2011

I'm trying to write a console application that can modify registry subkeys on remote pc's in the same network.  I have it working in my own environment but when I install on the customer machines I'm getting unauthorized access when it hits the OpenRemoteBaseKey. The security settings in the application properties is set to full trust application so I'm not sure why it won't work.

I'm using Visual Studio 2010 and first I just installed it on the customer machine and when it wouldn't work I ran the source code in Visual Studio 2005 which is on the customer machine but got same results.I can run the app directly on the remote machine and it will change the registry subkeys as directed, I just can't do it remotely. RemoteRegistry service is started. Both machines are logged in as administrators. 

Here is the source code:
Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic
Imports System

Check If Input To Group Number And Number Of Units Are Correct Input By Making Error Handling Exceptions

Sep 23, 2010

Part of my assignment is to check if input to Group Number and Number of Units are correct input by making error handling exceptions...

I have to check the following:
a) group number is neither 501 nor 062
b) number of units are NOT numbers
c) number of units is NOT a positive number

So my first question is, am I checking correctly? 2nd question is, How do I make sure my Exceptions will pertain to their correct respective things (a, b, and c.. above)?

Searching Multiple Files In Multiple Sub-folders

Mar 30, 2010

I'm developing an application to help law enforcement retrieve and analyze logs and other files left by the use of Pidgin (a multi-protocol messenger client). Right now I'm nearly done, but I want to add the ability to search chat logs for user-defined words or phrases and I don't even know where to begin.

Chat logs are stored as html documents in a folder/sub-folder/sub-folder/sub-folder fashion, where each sub-folder can have dozens of sub-folders inside of it, and the final sub-folder can have dozens if not hundreds of chat logs. If anybody could point me in the right direction, I'd be very grateful.

(Also, this is the first program I've written since about 2005, and I'm essentially teaching myself VB as I go. If you'd like to see what I've cobbled together so far, you can find the program here.)

Searching Data In An Access Database?

I know how to search for one specific number from a single line in an access database using a query, but now I have to search through a whole database and display each instance. Ex) I search the number "1" in column "1" of the database and it has "2" instances. So now I have to take the corresponding data in the rows next to it in order to display them in the label.

search: "1", both results are ID = "1"

dates amount
10/13/2009 $43.00
12/25/2009 $86.00

I know how to put the results for "1" line of a database into the .item field, but im confused on how to search multiple lines of a database and store multiple items. Heres what I have so far...
