I am using code like this:

CFile fl;
fl.Open("C:\\SomeFile.txt", CFile::modeWrite);
fl.Rename(fl.GetFileName(), "SomeFile2.txt");
fl.Close();

This produces an error message: A sharing violation occurred when accessing an unnamed file.

What the heck is going on?

Thanks a lot!

CFile::Rename cannot be used to rename a currently opened and locked file.

Further, you need not open the file to use CFile::Rename since this function is static.

Just do:

CFile fi;
fi.Open(whatever....);
fi.Close();
CFile::Rename("C:\\SomeFile.txt", "SomeFile2.txt");
