<Todo: File Description> Message when Norton AV intercepts process
Posted on 2005-04-07
This is a two part question (each part is worth half the total points offered).
This question might sound a bit difficult but I think is not that difficult, it's maybe a problem with naming my processes.Well, here is the description.
I have a MFC dialog application (VS.NET 2003) that copies files from source to target. The copy routine is a recursive function that basically "clones" the tree within source (files and sub-directories) into the target directory.
To do this, I create a working thread with AfxBeginThread(...) and I launch a Modal dialog from the main dialog (this is only to display a progress bar and a "Cancel" button). When large files being copied Norton AV displays its typical msg saying that a file is waiting to be scanned. The funny bit is that instead of showing the process name it says:
TODO: <File Description> is waiting for a virus scan of 'FILE.CAB'
Hence my question, where is "TODO: <File Description>" declared? How can I change that to my Apps name?
I'm using CopyFileEx to copy the files.
Another CopyFileEx related issue, when I cancel the copy process by pressing "cancel" on the modal dialog, the thread is finished with:
which in this case dwError == ERROR_REQUEST_ABORTED
on My main dialog thread, I retrieve this value with GetExitCodeThread and everything works fine. However, if I have my windows explorer open and pointing to the destination directory, it won't let me delete everything. I assume that the problem is that the CopyFileEx thread didn't release the last folder it was working on and that's why I cannot delete all? Any ideas and/or comments on this will be greatly appreciated.
