The Windows Disk Management 15






Another Deleting File Program Example


Create a new empty Win32 console application project. Give a suitable project name and change the project location if needed.



Then, add the source file and give it a suitable name.

Next, add the following source code.


#include <windows.h>

#include <stdio.h>


int main(int argc, char *argv[])


    BOOL fSuccess = FALSE;


    fSuccess = DeleteFile(TEXT("C:\\testing.txt"));

    if (!fSuccess)


        // Handle the error.

       printf ("DeleteFile() failed, error %d\n", GetLastError());

       return (6);



            printf ("DeleteFile() is  OK!\n");

    return (0);



Build and run the project. The following screenshot is a sample output.
