DWORD Copy_File(LPCSTR pszFrom, LPCSTR pszTo)
{
      SHFILEOPSTRUCT sFileOp;
      ZeroMemory(&sFileOp, sizeof(SHFILEOPSTRUCT));

      sFileOp.wFunc = FO_COPY;
      sFileOp.pFrom = pszFrom;
      sFileOp.pTo = pszTo;
      sFileOp.fFlags = FOF_SILENT|FOF_NOCONFIRMATION|FOF_NOERRORUI;

      if ( SHFileOperation(&sFileOp) )
      {
            return GetLastError();
      }

      return 0;

DWORD DelTree(LPCSTR pszBase)
{
      SHFILEOPSTRUCT sFileOp;
      ZeroMemory(&sFileOp, sizeof(SHFILEOPSTRUCT));

      sFileOp.wFunc = FO_DELETE;
      sFileOp.pFrom = pszBase;
      sFileOp.fFlags = FOF_SILENT|FOF_NOCONFIRMATION|FOF_NOERRORUI;

      if ( SHFileOperation(&sFileOp) )
      {
            return GetLastError();
      }

Hi roshmon,

now I'm getting one more problem.

let I'm writing the following code to copy folder

pszFrom = "e:\\Decom\\folder1";
pszTo     = "f:\\Decom";

this code working fine but if I write like :
CString tmpString1,tmpString2;

tmpString1 = "e:\\Decom\\folder1";
tmpString2 = "f:\\Decom";
...
...
pszFrom = tmpString1;
pszTo     = tmpString1;

means if I store pszFrom = some CString variable
or I tried strcpy(pszFrom,charString);
then it is not working

what to do ?

sprintf  showing error:
can not convert parameter1 from "const char *" to "char *"

while debugging in following code, pszFrom showing "e:\\Decom\\folder1"
 but not copying

tmpString1 = "e:\\Decom\\folder1";
...
...
pszFrom = tmpString1;

what to do????

in pszTo     = anything like CString or str or "path"
is working
but
pszFrom  = anything except "direct path"  not working.

type cast also not working.
