Hi,

In my application, I have the following codes:

Dim  strNotePadFile  as string, ii as interger

With Application.FileSearch
        .LookIn = "C:\"
        .SearchSubFolders = True
        .filename = "Notepad.exe"
       
    If .Execute() > 0 Then
        MsgBox "There were " & .FoundFiles.Count & _
            " file(s) found."
        ii = .FoundFiles.Count
        strNotePadFile = .FoundFiles(ii)           'return the path of the last one found
    Else
        MsgBox "There were no files found."
    End If

End With
       
It works fine in my development computer. However, when I install the application to another computer and runs the application with Access Runtime, the Application.filesearch.execute fails.

how do I fix this?

Can't find any info about it ...
Didn't try your example.

But why not using the traditional way, using Dir or the FileSystemObject?

Take a look here:

Possibly its a reference problem.

Go into Tools/Referencs on the non-development computer and see if there are any missing libraries.

All the references are there.
Actually, before posting this question, I thought about using Dir but did not try it, and I searched helpfile and find FileSystemObject but it has very little information there and I did not try it either. I wonder why Application.Filesearch is not working with Access Runtime.

I will give them a try and let you guys know.

Check that you have included all DLLs in the run-time library.

In order to check it - in the code window goto Tools->References and see what DLL's or OCX's are checked.

In the line below you will see the source of the file, for example "C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\form20.dll" and copy the file to run time library.
