3ds Max 2012 createFile error

If I create a maxscript file with maxscript like this

  • f = createFile "C:\a.ms"
  • close f

and if I drag and drop the file "a.ms" into max, max will crash.This doesn't happen in max 2011

Also I can't delete the file until I close max 2012 because it says that it is open in 3ds max.

can somebody explain why this is happening in 2012 and how to fix it

thanks.

I also found that maxscript

I also found that maxscript can't create file in c:\, but it can create files in c:\folder_name\. Don't know why.

I use dot net streamwriter

I use dot net streamwriter and streamreader to circumvent this problem. It seems in every max version there's a different bug going on with the openfile/createfile functions.
