I am working on a Windows 8 machine running a C++ project. I sometimes receive a -1 response for the following line of code. Is there another way to rename a file that will work?
I wasn't able to receive output from perror but I was able to figure out the solution.
Last week there was a Windows updated (unknown to me because it was not my computer) that put more restrictions on the C drive. My oldFileName was located in the C drive and because of those restrictions, it would not rename the file. I had to move the file location out of the C drive.
