How to Copy Files in the main thread

Post by MuhammadSohail » Wed Jun 22, 2005 9:10 am

Hi everyone,

in my Main thread , i want to copy some files from the Hard disk to the Temp folder . I am using _spawnlp command
_spawnlp( P_WAIT, "cmd", "cmd", "/c", "copy", from.c_str(), to.c_str(), NULL );

It is functioning properly but the problem is on the runtime it shows the Command window for a while which is not required.
Does anyone knows how to do this ???

thanks

Check out the file commands. It is much easier to use the calls from wxWidgets for that, they will handle the platform independent issues for it.
