Remarks

Moving the file

If <Path of file to rename> and <New file path> contain the same file name but different access paths, fRename moves the file.

Renaming a directory

fRename can also be used to rename a directory. To rename a directory, the directory to rename must be different from the current directory of the application.

Renaming a HFSQL file

To rename a HFSQL file, use HChangeName. Remark: From version 19, HFSQL is the new name of HyperFileSQL.

Managing errors

fRename generates an error in the following cases:
  • the file to rename does not exist,
  • the file to rename is locked,
  • the path of the file to rename is invalid,
  • <New file path> or <Path of file to rename> is an empty string,
  • the new file already exists.
Remark: This function operates on an empty file.

Operating mode in Windows Vista (and later)

If this function does not operate properly in Windows Vista (and later), check whether the file or directory used is not in one of the system directories (Windows directory or "Program Files" directory).
Indeed, in Windows Vista (and later), with the UAC mechanism (User Account Control) enabled, you must have the administrator privileges to handle and/or modify the files or directories in the system directories (Windows directory or "Program Files" directory).
Programming tip: To handle and/or modify the files or directories without administrator privileges, you should:
  • avoid writing into the Windows directory or into the "Program Files" directory,
  • use the system directory corresponding to the application (returned by SysDir associated with the srCommonAppData constant).
Remark: In Windows Vista (and later), the virtualization mechanism is used to make the applications compatible with Vista. If the file is created in a system directory without having sufficient rights, this file will actually be created in another directory (C:\Users\<LOGIN>AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Windows\). In this case, the file cannot be shared between several applications.
