“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 IfEnd 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.”
