    Question Listing files in c:\\sys\\bin

    Hi,
    I want to list the files (.exe) in c:\\sys\\bin folder.

    Code:
    	QDir m_ContentDir;
    
    	m_ContentDir.setPath(QDesktopServices::storageLocation(QDesktopServices::ApplicationsLocation));
    	QFileInfoList fileList = m_ContentDir.entryInfoList(QStringList(), QDir::AllEntries | QDir::Executable, QDir::Time);
        int count = fileList.count();
    Now the problem is that count is always zero for c:\\sys\\bin folder. I've checked the c:\\sys\\bin folder and quite obviously its not empty.

    I've tried with QFileDialog too, but its showing that the folder is empty.
    So can anybody propose any workaround?
    Thnx in advance

    Re: Listing files in c:\\sys\\bin

    Hi,

    C:\sys\bin is protected by Platform Security. To read the contents you need AllFiles capability and to write to it you need TCB - these capabilities can only be granted by the device manufacturer (and will not be granted in most cases).

    What sort of application are you trying to develop?
