I read previously messages about writing to the file and there is a solution, but they do not work for me.

That's what should be written down

But the file is empty

Dont use make file, this is the problem.

Open to write is all you need. It will create the file if it didn't exist.

here is a little program I wrote a while back it checks every few seconds minutes hours whatever if a file is up to date or not and if it isn't it will update it. It has some simple error handling and a basic settings file that is will create and read from when it is ran. designed it to back up files I was working on. can run it in hidden mode as well in the background.

also you should add code to overwrite the file to replace it with an updated version if you need to, example below:

on my version of dbpro, delete file already checks if the file exists or not. calling delete file on a file that doesn't exists never made an error or stopped the execution of my programms. i don't know if this is compiler version specific or not.
