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 ?





     

Roshan DavisCommented:
use sprintf
rpatnaAuthor Commented:
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????
Roshan DavisCommented:
Cast like this

(LPCTSTR)(LPTSTR)csSTRING
rpatnaAuthor Commented:

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

type cast also not working.


Roshan DavisCommented:
Show me how u declared pszTo, and pszFrom
