VB.Net, Advice on best way to have user activate functionality in app
Posted on 2012-12-21
Hi Experts. I'm looking for advice on the best way to solve the following:
There is a program running on a server that creates a number of different types of fles and adds them to the work folders of users on the local file server.
Users then have to copy them to various other folders on the same server. This happens two or three times a minutes for each user/operator so I would like to automate this functioality.
I am able to change the extension of these files so I thought if I were able to write an application for the file server, that was associated with the new file extention I could have maybe a TSR program or a service, that automated the copying functionality if the user double clicked on the file.
In otherwords, program dumps files in folders, extension of files changes automatically, user double clicks on files, the app copies the files to where they are supprosed to go.
Anyone have any thoughts on the best way to ascieve this?
