  • GhostFile problem

    My app creates two files as it processes data:

    Final.dta and Temp.dta (in the folder chosen by the user)

    Temp.dta is an intermediate file that I delete at the end of the processing with:
    KILL FilePathStr+TempFileStr

    If I have the folder open, it does not dissapear. If I try and drag it to the trash with a bunch of files i get a nasty windows message because it doesnt really exist. Its a pain.

    Is this a windows setting thing, or do I need to issue some command to have windows recognize that it is actually deleted?

    If you are talking about Explorer, just press F5 to refresh the file & directory list...

    Sometimes Explorer is a little slow in detecting changes in the current folder view.
