    That is what the program installer is supposed to do. The only way to do it would be to check for a db file that hasn't been copied, and replace the valid one. Suppose someone copies a file there two years later? You'd lose your DB when the app started "first time" again.

    Clearly you do not mean that you want to copy a directory.

    How about telling us what you want to do as your post makes no sense whatsoever

    IMO the OP wanted to say PATH instead of Directory
    and
    In button click event he :
    wants to open the mdb typed in the textbox
    wants to save the path
    and retrieve and show the path every time the program is executed

    I am thinking he is looking for a complicated way of getting app.path ?
