How can I delete a gruop of files using the '*' character?
I tried using CFile::Remove and invoking the del command with CreateProcess(...) but anyone delete the files.
I´m running the application on WNT.
Thanks

Use CFileFind to find the files then the CFile::Remove

roughly

      CFileFind finder;
      BOOL bWorking = (finder.FindFile("*.*"));
      while(bWorking)
      {
            bWorking = finder.FindNextFile();

            CString FileToKill = finder.GetFileName();

            if(!finder.IsDirectory())
                  CFile::Remove( FileToKill );
      }
      finder.Close();
