    boost filesystem exception problem

    Hi,

    I have one problem deleting a file with boost. The file is opened in another application and cannot be deleted.
    I am supposed to received an exception error but I don't get it. Any idea why?

    Here is my piece of code, very simple:
    Code:
    bool delete_file(const string &path) {
     
        boost::filesystem::path bpath(path);
        try {
            if (boost::filesystem::remove(bath)) return true;
            else return false;
        }
        catch (const boost::filesystem::filesystem_error &e) {
    
            return false;
    
        }
        return false;
    
    }
    I have put a breakpoint inside the catch part but it does not come to this point.
    Instead, the the output window of visual studio, I got these lines:

    First-chance exception at 0x00007FFD2E575A88 in site_server.exe: Microsoft C++ exception: boost::filesystem::filesystem_error at memory location 0x00000070F8E3E920.
    Unhandled exception at at 0x00007FFD2E575A88 in site_server.exe: Microsoft C++ exception: boost::filesystem::filesystem_error at memory location 0x00000070F8E3E920.

    I would appreciate if someone could explain me how to manage this situation?

    Thank you for reading,

    madric

    Yet you only assumed that the only exception thrown are ones that boost knows about.

    First, there is a difference between C++ exceptions, and the Microsoft OS structured exceptions. For example, access violations do not raise C++ exceptions, as those are SE's.

    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3...ured-exception

    Try making sure that your application is compiled with SEH exceptions turned on, and have a catch all
    Code:
    catch(...)
    block afterwards.
