    Use the RenameFile() function in the SysUtils.

    Ok that is a quite obvious. But if I just need to rename the extension part? Can this be done?

    :edit: I discovered the chaneextension routine, but it doesn't give any visible effect, no files are changed. What am I doing wrong?

    [code]procedure Revamp(i:integer; var s:string);
    var ns:string;
    begin
    case i of
    1: begin
    ns:= ChangeFileExt(s,'.DLL');
    end;
    2: begin
    ns:= ChangeFileExt(s,'.EXE');
    end;
    3: begin
    ns:= ChangeFileExt(s,'.MP3');
    end;
    4: begin
    ns:= ChangeFileExt(s,'.OGG');
    end;
    5: begin
    ns:= ChangeFileExt(s,'.RAR');
    end;
    6: begin
    ns:= ChangeFileExt(s,'.ZIP');
    end;
    else begin
    {Nothing to do}
    end;
    end;
    end;[/code]

    I have to revamp these files to make them work on my internet site that's why I need this to work.

    The library path/search path is a per user option, so
    the virus could change that (inserting a path to a
    modified DCU) and still produce the same behavior as now.
    This is also true with protected Program Files
    directory in Vista.
