# [archive] C\$Fileinfo

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 30 September 2005]

Hello everyone,
I'm woandering about can I do a lookalike C\$FILEINFO in a thin client environment. I mean C\$FILEINFO doesen't support the
@[DISPLAY]: notation, so in if I've to check the presence of a certain file on a client path, I've to launch a C\$SYSTEM with
csys-desktop attribute setted and the redirect it'output into a text file to parse. Not much handy and really slow.
Has someone an alternative idea to work it out?
Thanks In Advance and have a nice day, Giovanni

• Hi, sorry for the late answer I was out of office for some days: yours office mate was right: if you load a local (clinet side) DLL with @[DISPLAY] you've to use @[DISPLAY] notation to acces dll functions too.
one Note: from Acu version 8.0, C\$Fileinfo supports @[DISPLAY] notation so if you need to get file infos on client side you can use it instead of using WinApi calls.
bye Giovanni
