File is not accessible after File.Create()

When I use File.Create(filename) method, file is created but it is inaccessible until application closes. That means I cannot add any text lines to this file which is my intention. Is there some method to end File.Create like StreamReader.Close() or something ?

Did you use method to write to that file.

Make sure to check the folder permissions. You should give ASPNET Machine Account write permissions to that folder. If you do not have one listed, Add user ASPNET and give him appropriate permissions. Hope this will help.

This should work, although FileStream don't let you directly write text line into file (you need to specify byte array)

Is it in web application? If, the File.Create() will not work unless you specify the impersonation or change directory security setting
Hope this helps

No there is no problem with security in that directory. ASP.NET is regularly configured but same thing happens in WindowsApplication. Although I didn't use File.Open method to write to file. I'll try this. 

But, when I try to write to existing file - I don't get error....
Also, after File.Create() accessing that file from e.g. windows explorer is not possible until application closes...

If you call File.Create() first, this file can't be opened correctly in windows explorer before you call "Close".

Is it possible for you to post your code of windows application? I can't repro your problem

"this file can't be opened correctly in windows explorer before you call "Close"."

this is the whole problem ! How do I call "Close" ???
Anyway my code is not very helpfull because it's only one line :


After this until application exits, file is not accesible

Create a text file from a web form
Is there an open-source tool that can be used to create a simple web form that prompts for some basic information and then create a text file on the users workstation. What I want to do is to create a standard e-mail signature file for my users. To do that I was thinking of prompting them for their information and then formatting that information into a html file that I would then save on their workstations for use. Ideally I'd also like to save a graphic image as well along with the html file. I need to do something that does not require any code to be installed on the...

I create the file like this System.IO.File.Create("pallingtest1.txt") but how do I tell it where to save the file?
can anyone help? Why don't you specify the fully qualified path where you want to write the file rather than try and figure out where its going to write it? Jeev~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~If you get the answer to your question, please mark it as the answer.  From the MSDN docs: <i>The path parameter is permitted to specify relative or absolute path information. Relative path information is interpreted as relative to the current working directory. To obtain the current working directory, see GetCurrentDirectory.</i>

Reading Excel Files from a .Net Web Form
Hi, This might be a dumb question, but ... When reading an Excel file from a .Net Web Form, is it necessary to have Microsoft Excel actually installed on the client machine running the web form?
