Post FileZip Command Reply with quote

Version: 2.3.5 of 24x7 Scheduler

I am having a problem getting the FileZip command to work.

If I setup the command like this: FileZip( "htslog2.zip", "htslog2.log" )
I get an error message Line 1: invalid file name. File "" not found.

If I setup the command like this: FileZip( "htslog2.log", "htslog2.zip" )
I get an error message Line 1: invalid file name. File "htslog2.zip" not found and it erases the htslog2.log file.

Also, there is confusion between the help system and the coding assistant.
The help file has the format as FileZip , and the coding assistant has the format as FileZip ,

Thank You,

John

Always specify full file names to avoid getting this message again. The current directory could be anything at the job execution time. The correct syntax
if "FileZip [new zip file name], [list of files to zip]".

Please do not use signs of logical operations such as "<" in this forum messages as they are considered as part of HMTL syntax and removed from messages when posted.

I've tried that as well using FileZip "D:\\TRANSIT\\MYZIP.ZIP", "D:\\TRANSIT\\MYDOC.TXT" and I still get the same error.

Sorry about the Logical operators in my previous text.

Also I've upgraded to 2.3.5 of the software.

1. Check if you have special ASCII symbols enabled in the system options, if not replace double back-slashes with single back-slashes
2. Make sure that d:\transit\mydoc.txt does exist and d:\transit is a write enabled directory.

1. Search for special charaters is enabled with the \ being the escape charater.

2. The file does exist and I am logged in as Administrator so I have all rights.

3. If the zip file exists it is deleted but the error still occures.

Two more questions...

Is D drive a local drive? if yes what is your operations system and file system (FAT, FAT32, NTFS, other)?

After you do a FileCopy for the file, can you FileZip the copy of the original file created by the FileCopy?

: Yes, FileCopy does work.

The D drive is a Local drive with an NTFS file system.

No, I can not FileZip the copy.

Does it work on the C drive?

Try for example the following script

FileSave "c:\\test.txt", "dummy text"
FileZip "c:\\test.zip", "c:\\test.txt"
FileDelete "c:\\test.txt"
MessageBox "Done. Now verify c:\\test.zip"

This should produce c:\test.zip

Nope, FileZip does not work anywhere.
But strangly FileUnZip does work just fine.

You would think that if one didn't work neither
would the other.
