I am trying to save/copy a png file to the Documents folder from my Vb Net application. I can save any other type of file but an image. I can save the image to Pictures but I need to include it with other files as part of a report so I need them all in the same location. Why will it not let me put an image in the Documents folder? I can put them in there manually, I can save practically any other file there. I can save the .png as .pn_ but then it won't let me rename it. WHY????
Public logofile As String = IO.Path.Combine(GetFolderPath(SpecialFolder.MyDocuments), "YT-Chaps\bin\logo.png")
If IO.File.Exists(logofile) = False Then Dim logotmp As String = logofile logotmp = logotmp.Substring(0, logotmp.Length - 1) & "_" Try IO.File.Copy("logo.png", logotmp, True) Catch ex As Exception MsgBox(ex.Message.ToString) End Try End If
This doesn't - "Copy Error
If IO.File.Exists(logofile) = False Then Try IO.File.Copy("logo.png", logofile, True) Catch ex As Exception MsgBox(ex.Message.ToString) End Try End If
I have also tried to load it to a BMP and save it using bitmap.save, I get a Generic GDI+ error when I do that.
