    desktop.ini file causing issues.


    I am having an issue with the desktop.ini file. I made a folder on a USB stick for use uploading a CSV to an instrument I am working on. When the instrument's OS looks for for the file, it expects a specific name and only the one CSV file to be present. The presence of the desktop.ini file causes an error message stating that there is not the correct number of files present. I understand that this file is basically in every folder, and until now, I have never had in issue with it.

    My questions are, "What exactly are the actions that cause a new file to be generated after it is deleted?" and "Is there a way to prevent its generation, at least in one location so that I don't either have to always have the system files shown (as I've no need for them to be visible), so I don't have to delete it every time? The instrument in question uses Knoppix Linux.

    :)

  3. Snippet C#: INI Files

    GetSections() will return a string[] of section names. If you want the values too, just do a for or for loop to enumerate them. For example:

    Code: foreach (string section in ini.GetSections()) { Console.WriteLine("[" + section + "]"); foreach (string key in ini[section].GetKeys()) Console.WriteLine(key + "=" + ini[section][key]); Console.WriteLine(); }[/quote]
