Which OS?

Which Filesystem?

It works here on XP/NTFS ( having set ProgramFiles(x86)=C: ) what is the output of

SET  ProgramFiles

?

@ECHO OFF
SET ProgramFiles(x86)=C:
SET Program
ECHO.
DIR /S /B "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Test\(CF3 Support)\"
ECHO.
FOR /D %%p IN ("%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Test\(CF3 Support)\*.*") DO rmdir "%%p" /s /q

DIR /S /B "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Test\(CF3 Support)\"

C:\test>rmdirtest.cmd

ProgramFiles=C:\Programmi

ProgramFiles(x86)=C:

C:\Test\(CF3 Support)\a folder with spaces (and + and - and brackets)

C:\Test\(CF3 Support)\A_file.txt

C:\Test\(CF3 Support)\a folder with spaces (and + and - and brackets)\+ChristophMaitland+Veela-Fall silently.flp

C:\Test\(CF3 Support)\a folder with spaces (and + and - and brackets)\Zircon-Just (alpha team remix).flp

C:\Test\(CF3 Support)\A_file.txt

C:\test>

I say it a permission issue, if you are using Vista and up. Try to right click the script and select

Run As Admin.

Thanks But x86 x64 windows 7.

Run As Admin.

:whistle:

In order to try and help people (actually coming here and asking for help) we often need to ask questions.

You can easily spot them because they have a small "hook" sign "?" at the end.

You were asked THREE of them:

  1. Which OS?
  2. Which Filesystem?
  3. what is the output of "SET ProgramFiles"?

Right now we have a (vague) answer to only the first one, i.e. now we know that you are running Windows 7 (and probably the 64 bit version of it), and such a system WILL have issues with permissions IF the target is on a NTFS filesystem (question #2) AND it is run NOT with Administrator permission.

Them someone may suggest you to try something, like:

Try to right click the script and select Run As Admin.

It would be nice if you could actually try the suggestion and report what happens. :yes:

EXACTLY like your posts are NOT the anwers to the questions I asked, but are merely a re-post.

So we are perfectly even :thumbup , you don't answer to the questions I ask, and I do not provide an answer to your question/problem, the difference being that everything works for me smiling9.gif, while it doesn't for you :no: .

1:\ Are you trying to remove %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Test\(CF3 Support)\ and all it sub folders and files?

2:\ Or are you trying to remove from %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Test\(CF3 Support)\ all the files and leave the folder empty?

Here is a VBS script that I tested to remove a folder in the Programfiles

Test Path = C:\Program Files (x86)\Test-(Delete) Me

Remove Folder

How I ran it on Win 7 x64 UAC enable

1:\ Open Cmd Promt with admin right

2:\ CD to script location EG CD C:\Users\Gunsmokingman\Desktop

3:\ Type this in Cmd Promt Window Wscript Test_Delete_ProgramFiles.vbs

VBS Script


Dim Fso :Set Fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Dim Loc :Loc = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Test-(Delete) Me"
If Fso.FolderExists(Loc) Then Fso.DeleteFolder(Loc),True

List Files In ProgramFiles Folder

How I ran it on Win 7 x64 UAC enable

1:\ Open Cmd Promt with admin right

2:\ CD to script location EG CD C:\Users\Gunsmokingman\Desktop

3:\ Type this in Cmd Promt Window Cscript Test_Delete_ProgramFiles.vbs

this will show all the files in the parent directory in the Cmd Promt window

VBS Script


Dim Fso :Set Fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Dim Loc :Loc = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Test-(Delete) Me"
' If Fso.FolderExists(Loc) Then Fso.DeleteFolder(Loc),True

Dim Obj
For Each Obj In Fso.GetFolder(Loc).Files
WScript.Echo Obj
'Fso.DeleteFile(Obj),True
Next
