In a console program, how do I change attributes on a specific file?  For example, Outlook.exe...  I've tried system("attrib -r c:/program files/microsoft office/office/outlook.exe"); to no avail.  Thanks in advance (again)!

Regards,
Tony

Have you tried quoting the filename (since it has spaces)?

e.g.

system("attrib +r \"c:\\program files\\microsoft office\\office\\outlook.exe\"");
