    I am assuming these files are stored in the program's directory. If that happens to be in the {system root}\Program Files... folder on Vista, it will not allow files to be created in that folder without admin rights being requested either via a manifest or within the shortcut for your ap.

    Arie,

    Why not use the wonderful TRY/CATCH/FINALLY/END TRY Command ?
    When you start to use it you will not use anything else for opening any kind of Hard Disk Files.
    You can catch all the errors right there.
    A programmer's dream come true.....
    I would not think of opening files the old way.

    And, if you have to write multi-user programs, it is also the best way to lock your files.

    Arie,
    you need to check if there was an error:
    Code:
        ERRCLEAR
        OPEN "D:\File1.txt" FOR INPUT AS #1
        IF ERR = 0 THEN
            PRINT "#1 opened"
        ELSE
            PRINT ERROR$
        END IF
    Paul.

    I am not sure if this part of the problem or not, but according to the help file, a file that is opened for input must exist.
    The code shows two lines that are supposed to restore files, but are commented out.

    Restrictions
    Attempting to OPEN a file for INPUT that does not exist causes a run-time Error 53 ("File not found").
    However, if i actually try this, i find that with PBCC 5 a non-existing file can be opened for input without error.
    I can imagine that this may cause strange problems.

    Code:
    #Compile Exe
    #Dim All
    #Break On
    
    Function PBMain () As Long
    
           
        Open "D:\File1.txt" For Input As #1
        Print "#1 opened"
        Open "D:\File2.txt" For Input As #2
        Print "#2 opened"
        Open "D:\File3.txt" For Output As #3
        Print "#3 opened"
        Open "D:\File4.txt" For Output As #4
        Print "#4 opened"
        
        WaitKey$
    
    End Function

    I "think" that can be solved with a manifest. Search "manifest AND vista" here.

    PBCC EXE Causing Vista User Act. Control

    I have compiled hundreds of CC programs and never had this problem. The only difference is that I open 4 sequential files, two for input and two for output at the same time. When I do I get flagged for user control: 'Unidentified Publisher' Do you want to allow this program?

    Here is the code section:

    A2000_INITIALIZATION:
    'SHELL "COPY MSTR91.BAK MSTR91.CSV" '/ RESTORE MASTER FILE
    'SHELL "COPY CHKTOT91.BAK CHKTOT91.CSV" '/ RESTORE CHECK FILE
    COLOR 6
    CLS
    PRINT "STUDY PROGRAM 9.1: SALES FILE UPDATE"
    PRINT "PROGRAMMER: AMW"
    PRINT
    OPEN "MSTR91.CSV" FOR INPUT AS #1
    OPEN "TRAN91.CSV" FOR INPUT AS #2
    OPEN "NEW-MSTR.CSV" FOR OUTPUT AS #3
    OPEN "ERR91.CSV" FOR OUTPUT AS #4
    HIGH_VALUE$ = "9999"
    DETAIL01$ = "#,###,###"
    RETURN
Working...
