Include File Issue

Midwest_TechMidwest_Tech Posts: 4Member
Hey all,

I am trying to include a (sqlbackup).bak file in my project for deployment.

I am able to include the file just fine, but If i run an sql script in code to restore a database from it, I get an access denied error.

Just to double check my code, I referenced the file directly (without including it in the project) and i was able to use it just fine.

Any idea how to get around this? I really need to be able to include this file so it deploys with the application.

Here's a sample of the code that will be accessing the file (CleanDB.bak is the file in question).....

[code]Dim con As New SqlConnection
Dim cmd As New SqlCommand

con.ConnectionString = My.Settings.ConnectionString
cmd.Connection = con

cmd.CommandText = sql

sql = "RESTORE DATABASE " & DBName & " FROM DISK = N'" & Application.StartupPath & "CleanDB.bak' WITH FILE = 1, MOVE N'" & DBName & "' TO N'" & DBPath & "',REPLACE"
cmd.CommandText = sql

    Never mind, I got it figured out.

    It was a file permission issue after all. I changed the permissions on the file, set it to always copy and it is now working.
