FileSystemObject and 2010

FileSystemObject and 2010

FileSystemObject and 2010

(OP)
Now this is just killing me... I haven't programmed in VB for a while. Was pretty good with 6 or so I thought...

I'm trying to access and use the FileSystemObject in a module in VB (using Visual Studio 2010). I added Microsoft Scripting Runtime in the project references.

Now you'd think I'd be able to declare like this:
Dim fso As FileSystemObject

But no, the class is nonexistent. Not even there.

Nor can I do this:
Dim fld As Folder

Apparently they've made some rather large changes since I last developed..

This really stinks because I kinda need to do both of these things. Google and the like have produced nothing. Seems I can't find any help online, what turns up is for .NET only -- which I can't use on this little project.

What the heck happened??? How can I manipulate/modify/enumerate directories and files? Did they scrap the FileSystemObject altogether??? What else can I use to iterate files and directories?

Thanks in advance!

Erm ... the VB in Visual Studio 2010 is VB.NET, so yes you can use .NET. In fact, you more-or-less have to.

And the tools for playing with files and folders (back to being called directories) are much more powerful and flexible than the FileSystemObject ... just have a look at the System.IO namespace.
