Hi Everyone

I've been trying the file_column plug-in and have some basic examples
working.  However when I repeat the install on a laptop (Win XP) I get
the following error when attempting to upload:

Errno::ENOENT in AdminController#create
No such file or directory -
c:/temp/1169548422.983000.3156/Flowers004.JPG or

The file is created in the directory referred to by the Windows TEMP
Environment Variable but for some reason it can't be copied to the
file_column tmp directory!

Has anyone else seen this issue or have a solution?

Thanks

Steve

Don't use file column, use Rick Olsons acts_as_attachment. Much more
used, and therefore much better tested, and it's just better in the
first place imo.

Has anyone had any experience of migrating to acts_as_attachment from
file_column with an existing project? I have hundreds of images all
neatly resized into various folders and would need to keep them all
where they are.

I'm not averse to rewriting a little code, just not my entire
application!

thanks
