"File Exists?" Revision

To adapt the tip "File Exists?" (see "101 Hot Tech Tips for VB Developers," Supplement to the August 1996 issue of VBPJ, page 7) to a directory list box, it is necessary to control the error that occurs when the user selects the root (C:\):
 
Sub Dir1_Change
	Dim File As String
	File = Dir1.Path
	If Right$(File, 1) = "\" Then
		File = File & "himem.sys"
	Else
		File = File & "\" & "himem.sys"
	End If
	' Chuong Van Huynh's tip 
	If Dir$(File) <> "" Then
		MsgBox "himem.sys exists !"
	End If
End Sub
Without testing to see if the path already ends with a backslash, as it would when it's the root directory, an error occurs because of the string "c:\\himem.sys."
