One possibility is that the error is actually on line 94 and your code is attempting to clear all attribute of a folder or an alias or a compressed file -- and that is disallowed.
To verify this, echo the filename to the screen just before executing that line.
If the error only occurs for folders or aliases or compressed files, then you will need to NOT set the attibutes to 0 for that item.


will it work if i remove notreadonly function?
