    Question Runtime Error 53 'file not found'

    I'm trying to use this from the codebank.

    I've put the AutoUpdaterX.ocx and MSINET.ocx controls on the form and a control button to ctlUpdate1.Update

    So what am I doing wrong? I've set the file URL in the remoteEXE property on the .ocx OK (100% it's correct).

    Ideas on a postcard plase

    Re: Runtime Error 53 'file not found'

    It's stopping on
    VB Code:
    1. ctlUpdate1.Update
    So I'm guessing it's something in the .ocx or something I'm not doing right

    put a breakpoint at ctlUpdate1.Update, you'll need to add the usercontrol to your project to be able to do this, not the compiled ocx itself, then just run through it till you find the 'real' line thats causing the error.

    Re: Runtime Error 53 'file not found'

    Added the control to usercontrols and removed the .ocx, but I get a compile error on
    VB Code:
    1. ctlUpdate1.Update
    So I guess it's not being referenced somehow.

    Sorry for sounding such a nooob, I've only been using VB for a few months and this is the first time I've come across usercontrols (TBH I still don't know what they are......uncompiled .ocx?)

    Re: Runtime Error 53 'file not found'

    Ok stick with me...please!!

    Sorted where I was going wrong, hopefully I'm getting the hang of this slowly...

    VB Code:
    1. Dim fsoFile As File
    Is where the error is in the Usercontrol.
    'User defined type not defined' is the error, so I guess 'File' should be defined somewhere?

    no thats not the error, you need to add a reference to the microsoft scripting runtime.

    Re: Runtime Error 53 'file not found'

    VB Code:
    1. Set fsoFile = FSO.GetFile(strFileName)

    strFileName is the remote file with http:// stripped

    Looking at the variables, the local file is 'C:/Program ...VB6.exe' so I guess that's why it can't find the file.

    But going back and adding the scripting runtime to the project with the .ocx and running it again still gives the runtime error 53.

    Give me ladder logic anyday!!

    Re: Runtime Error 53 'file not found'

    Right....

    If I try to update with local file (file://) then it's ok, but still get the same error 53 when trying over the internet.

    Tried a couple of servers, but still the same.

    So it isn't the .ocx code as such...so where am I going wrong?

    i didn't know you could use GetFile to 'get' remote files so will need to pass. i think it is the coding thats at fault.

    Re: Runtime Error 53 'file not found'

    Just a blind guess, because of the destination path?
