I have an xml file which is readable and writeable. I wnat to ensure that this file is writeable if it is set to read-only. I am doing my work using the code: afpXmlDocumnet As XmlDocument = New XmlDocument afpXmlDocumnet.Load(filename) 'reading some nodes ............................ 'writing to some node ............................ 'saving the file afpXmlDocumnet.Save(appPath) the last line number ,whrere I save xml file, throws an exception when file is read-only. What should I do to avoid this ? How to make it writeable? Any help...

Hi

I tried with this piece of code before writing to the file :

Dim fileInformation As New FileInfo(filename)
If fileInformation.IsReadOnly Then
fileInformation.Attributes = FileAttributes.Normal
End If

Now it works ...
