This is what I've wrote.. and it fails to rename existing files
For Each file As String In listbox1.Items
IO.File.Copy(file, IO.Path.Combine(fbCopyto.SelectedPath, IO.Path.GetFileName(file)))
While IO.File.Exists(fbCopyto.SelectedPath & file)
file= file & x & ".wav"
x += 1
I understand how to rename a file in vb.net as I use the coding at the end of my post. However, is its possible to rename a file and if the file exists then to rename it and add +1 to the file name? So if I ran the code. 'Run it first time My.Computer.FileSystem.RenameFile("c: est est.txt", "c: estNewName.txt") 'Run it again but it should add +1 as the file will already exists so it should be "c: estNewName1.txt" My.Computer.FileSystem.RenameFile("c: est est.txt", "c: estNewName.txt")
Decided rather than rename and +1 it would be better to just date stamp it. My.Computer.FileSystem.RenameFile("c: est est.txt", "Test" & Format(Date.Now, "ddMMyy") & ".txt")
I add a mainmenu I have to edit InitializeComponent().I tried to take a shortcut and copy an existing menu and then rename it. Big mistake. If you have done it, do not do it again.Anyone have an idea of how to get me back on track? I have done a rebuild, closed VB etc.

in the current project im making i've decided to add in some tools, 1 of which is a renamer based of a renamer app that already exists (called scdtoolz), i want to build my own version of it so i can learn some new things, and build a nice GUI version of it.[code]So what i have managed to determine is that the current app scans the folders contents for the CRC32 Checksum, and renames based of that, since the 456.bin's CRC32 Checksum was 2274F80B, and in the text file 2274F80B is found here 'WWF - Rage in the Cage (T-81015)(U)#2274F80B#'So now i have determined game identification is based of the CRC32 checksums, how would i go about coding a similar ap in vb.net?first i need to make the app scan a folder, but how to return crcchecksum? and then rename if check = XXXX? If MD4 sums are easier/simpler i can use those instead, im lookin at a few hash app sources now, so i think i can see how to get the md5 but not the crc32 yet, or how to rename the 2 files and folder based of the text file.
I have a script task inside a for each file loop which moves files from one directory to another. It uses the file.move command which works fine unless the file I am moving already exists in the destination directory. I would like to add the datetime string to the filename before moving it or alternatively an incremental variable to make the filename unique before its moved.
I am trying to change the file names of all the files in a directory based on content of the file. So I am opening the file, reading the content, storing the new file name in a variable and then trying to change the name of the file. This is not working because when I start this loop I am opening the file and viewing it so it won't allow me to change while the file is in use. Should I store the old and new file names in an array and do the renames after the For Next Loop is complete?
A while back I asked about going beyond basic FTP upload/download on this thread, and the response I got about using FtpWebRequest was very helpful. Now I'm looking at something that doesn't seem to be offered in FtpWebRequest: renaming a file on the server.
My situation: several times each month I update MyConfig.csv on my website. This file is generated on my computer by Excel to control who can access which files on the site, and it runs a bit over 1 MB. The scripts on the server parse through the file to keep things running smoothly. Given that the file can take some time to transfer, I typically will upload NewMyConfig.csv to the server with a commercial FTP program, then when it is in place I rename the existing file to MyConfigBackup20100521.csv and then rename NewMyConfig.csv to MyConfig.csv. This way, if there is a problem with the upload, everything keeps running smoothly because the existing MyConfig is undisturbed, and the window when a customer might get an error from the scripts because there is no MyConfig.csv is reduced to a couple of seconds between the two rename operations.
Now I'd like to automate all of this to happen with a VB program, but it looks like FtpWebRequest only allows you to rename directories, not individual files, on the server.
I have a program that I have been creating for work, however, I am down to the last part and can't figure it out......The code below copies files from one directory to another from a list of file names in the first column of an excel sheet. This part works fine. What I am trying to figure out is how can I have a prefix in column B where it renames the file while being copied to the destination folder?
I have the below code that (not sure exactly where I found it) I am trying to add a recursive rename to all files in the directory. Currently, this code only does a folder at a time, however, I need it to go through all the folders and change all files.
Private Sub StripXfromBeginning(ByVal strip As Integer) Dim JustFileName As String Dim attributes As FileAttributes GetFileArray() For Each fileNameToProcess In FileList [Code] .....

In the attached project when I load the files in datatable and then try to add images without using the "Dispose" method the datagridview does not showing it correctly and when I load images with "Dispose" method then everything is showing correctly but the files are being lock and i am unable rename them...
Basically I download lots of TV shows and they're never named in the way I like; they're named like this "The Office.S06E22.HDTV.XviD-NoTV."So I was wondering if I had a .txt file with all the episode names I could make a program to rename all the video files in the right order so they're named like this "The Office Season 6 Episode 22 - Secretary's Day."So I want to copy and paste a list of correct episodes names into a text file. Then I want to read the text file, which I already know how to do. Then, and this is the bit I'm struggling with, I want to read the text file, one line at a time, and it renames the top video file with the top episode name and so on.
way to retrieve list/rename hiddne files from the remote host. I need to upload the file to a server and then move it to another directory, but the file after being transfered becomes hidden. If I try to rename it any way I get the dreaded 550 in response. I would hate to move to commad line scripting which at the moment seams to be my only option.
I'm trying to figure a way to select multiple files from a folder and rename them and also add a sequential number to the end.Example: Take img_001.jpg, img_002.jpg and rename them to picture1.jpg, picture2.jpg and so on. There is a maximum of 50 files in each folder..
how can i either copy/move/rename & delete a file in program files directory? [c ode]i already have the form which grabs the updated file and it save it to temp directory ready for copying, just stuck here as of the access denied.
I have a VB.NET project in Visual Studio 2008 that I created a specialized addin for. The addin prompts the user to select a database table, takes a template form class's files, copies them to another directory within the project, and renames the form class within the copied files. It then opens the new form and adds controls to it based on the fields in the database table.
The copying of the template form causes the background compiler to give 'duplicate member' errors, such as "Private Sub InitializeComponents(...) has multiple definitions with identical signatures," even though I renamed the files of the new form and the class name within them. Sometimes these errors go away before the new form is opened, but when they stick around the new form doesn't open correctly, and it throws an error instead. I implemented some code to wait until there are zero errors in the error list before trying to open the new form. This has helped sometimes, but for some reason sometimes the errors don't go away at all until the addin is closed.
How to copy the template form and rename the copy without the background compiler ever noticing duplicate members. If that's not possible, then perhaps someone has an alternative?
Here is my code that copies and renames the template form:
Private Sub CreateDataForm(ByVal tableName As String, ByVal displayName As String) ', ByVal subDataForms As IList(Of Object)) Try Dim dataFormClassName As String = "frm" & MakeValidName(displayName) Dim dataFormFileName As String = dataFormClassName & cVBSuffix
I have 15 years' worth of files (approx. 10,000) that were created using VB6 structures and stored using the random access method. I am trying to write a conversion routine that will read the old structures and put them into a new format that is more compatible with the .net environment. I have not been able to successfully read any of the old files using the tools available in .net. Each file starts with a header record structure. The header record tells me how many tags are in the file. The next record (ie record number 2) is the first tag pointer record in the file.
There are num_of_tags of the pointer records. Each pointer record has the string that holds the tag's 'literal name and two long integers that tell where in the file this tags records are. Those actual records are stored as History data structures, [Code]
im having a problem with replacing some files in a folder, i have made a Auto Upater for a application im making (so beta testers can test it and also get updated stuff to test) now i can replace the Main application.exe with
If File.Exists(Application.StartupPath + "\test.exe") Then File.Replace(Application.StartupPath + "\update\test.exe", Application.StartupPath + "\test.exe", Application.StartupPath + "\test.exe.old") End If
This is after i have unziped the main update.zip folder it downloaded
but i also have a Data folder in the Main application folder and inside the new update\Data folder its has updated files now i cant list all files to replace like above as i want be replacing all files all the time, so im looking for something like you have on windows (would you like to replace files) without the prompt its just replaces them, so really im looking for a move and replace without prompting
I am currently writing a program in VB 2008. Here is what the program is intended to do: I need it to have two forms of input, so I want it to open existing text files and create new ones. Once the user has selected what input to be taken (either a file is opened or a new one is made, guessing multiple forms need to be used here) the user will then take the text file either created or opened and then be able to click a button which will sort all the text in the text file into alphabetical order and then display the results to the screen. While this happens, I need the words in the file to be counted by a counter (so a loop i guess) that then displays on which line each word appears on. I then need this information to be displayed in a text box on screen.
I am using iTextSharp to add watermarks to existing PDF files & using PDF-XChange Viewer [URL] to view & print the PDF's. The problem is that the watermarks don't display in PDFXC & print out with the spacing all messed up. Is there a certain way I need to create the watermark with iTextSharp in order for it to display in PDFXC?
