Delete Folder Permission - Get System Permission To Delete The Directory?

Apr 3, 2009

My.Computer.FileSystem.DeleteDirectory("folder location here", FileIO.DeleteDirectoryOption.DeleteAllContents)

I created a program which was deleting a particular directory for me. The program was compiled and working. Today I run the same program...did not do any system updates and now it won't delete my specified directory. I ran tests to make sure the directory is there when testing...I keep getting access/permission errors.

I rebooted system, ran my application...still gave me error. I turned off Windows Defender...still got error. If I manually delete the problem.

Is there a way to get system permission to delete the directory? I am being given an 'access denied' error...I do not have permission. I tried running my application as good. - VB 2008 Express - VISTA OS

If someone else had that text file on their computer but their user name 'john' was different.. such as
What would be the code so that that text file will be deleted from that directory under any user name? Like for example you have to go through 'john' in order to get to my "temp" folder... but when I put in "%temp%" it automatically took me to my temp folder.. can I use something like this to be able to delete a file under any user name?

Like maybe something along the lines of:
dim filetodelete as string
if = true then

But this code doesn't delete the text file 'deleteme.txt' from john or marys computer. What would be the correct way to do this?

Dim fa() As IO.FileInfo

I have a multi user application that stores temporary files in a folder that the users are using, but i want all unused temporary files deleted in it. So how do i go about doing this?

Delete Directory (Skip Access Denied Folders) ?

Jul 22, 2009

I'm fiddling around with a small program that can delete a directory, including its sub-folders and files.This is the code I'm using: (Note-I found it on the net, I didn't code it myself)

Private Sub filedelete(ByVal filename As String)
Dim filesystemobject As Object
filesystemobject = CreateObject("Scripting.filesystemobject")[code]..........

So on click of button '2' the folders are cleaned out, and on click of button '3' they are deleted - it works great.Now the problem is, if any of the folders in the directory 'test' are not accessible to the current user, the program throws the exception 'Access to the path is denied.Is it possible to skip folders that are not accessible, and just ignore them, and delete the ones that are accessible?What code needs to be added to enable this ability?

VS 2008 Delete File In User Specific Directory?

Dec 16, 2009

what is probably a very stupid and basic question, I'm new to Visual Basic I currently coding a program which deletes specific files that are part of a game. It finds and deletes all the files in the "program files" directorys but there are also certain files in My Documents that must be deleted.

The problem is the filepath to My Documents includes a username which is unique to different users, meaning on any other pc the program will not work.

The path on my computer is: C:UsersShaneDocumentsElectronic Arts

How can I get the program to find this folder on other computers? I'm totally lost.

VS 2010 How To Check Whether Files Are Being Accessed Before Do Directory.Delete

Apr 5, 2012

I'm copying over some files to a target directory on a daily basis.Before I move the new files over, I'd like to delete the old files under the target folder, possibly using System.IO.Directory.Delete()But my problem is, the target folder is on a public drive where everybody in the company could access, and I don't want to empty the folder while someone else might be using those files.I'm thinking whether there's a Class that check the status on the files in a specific directory before I come in and delete everything.(I know I would get an IOException if I disregard the status of the files and try to delete them)

Choosing A Row In ListView?

Nov 17, 2010

how to get different backcolors and how to change them using ListView.ItemCheck.

I am using ListView in a self written control (basically to improve padding). In some deployments, CheckBoxes is set to true and I use a RaiseEvent to return the Index of the row selected using an ListView_SelectedIndexChanged event.

In other deployments, I am using the control with the CheckBoxes set to false. But clicking on a row does not fire the ListView_SelectedIndexChanged event to be able to use RaiseEvent to return the Index of the row chosen. I have tried using a MouseUp event to capture the mouse Y coordinate. But conversion of that coordinate to an Index position is both inconsistent and inaccurate with my primative code of

return = (point.Y - / some constant

I have used ItemHeight on a ListBox in a similar situation but ListView does not have an ItemHeight property.

how I can capture the Index of a row clicked in a ListView without checkboxes?
