I tried to add maps removal on launch but i get run time 53 errors…

I added

```

Kill (App.Path & "\data files\maps")

```
infront of

```

Shell App.Path & "\" & ClientName, vbNormalFocus

```
Like this

```

If FileExist(App.Path & "\" & ClientName) Then

Kill (App.Path & "\data files\maps")

Shell App.Path & "\" & ClientName, vbNormalFocus

Else

```

Any suggestion on how to get it work? I want it to delete the maps folder when pressing launch

Make sure that client name is your game name along with '.exe'.

And why make it delete the map cache?

Use

```

If FileExist(App.Path & "\" & ClientName) Then

Kill (App.Path & "\data files\maps\" & "*.map")

Shell App.Path & "\" & ClientName, vbNormalFocus

Else

```
It will work. I tested it. And Deathbeam you were right it wouldn't delete the folder it would throw the file not found error. I am not sure why the error because the file existed. Oh well.

Not really, because a folder is not a file.

Your host either doesn't support .txt files, or News.txt doesn't exist. In case of the first issue, change the .txt reference and the file to whatever would work.. And in the second case, well.. Put the file there ![:P](http://www.touchofdeathforums.com/community/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.png)
