I am trying to create a Windows Forms application that will allow the enduser to be able to backup their genuine Windows 7 Activation file. They user can then, reinstall Windows 7 and then restore their Activation status on the same machine. I have the GUI the way I want it to look, but I am having difficulties with the code that is used to copy the files.

Thanks in Advance.

I need help writing code that will copy the files below to the same directory that the Backup application is in.

Here are the file locations:




#pragma once

namespace Windows7Activation {

	using namespace System;
	using namespace System::ComponentModel;
	using namespace System::Collections;
	using namespace System::Windows::Forms;
	using namespace System::Data;
	using namespace System::Drawing;

	/// <summary>
	/// Summary for Form1
	/// WARNING: If you change the name of this class, you will need to change the
	///          'Resource File Name' property for the managed resource compiler tool
	///          associated with all .resx files this class depends on.  Otherwise,
	///          the designers will not be able to interact properly with localized
	///          resources associated with this form.
	/// </summary>
	public ref class Form1 : public System::Windows::Forms::Form
			//TODO: Add the constructor code here

		/// <summary>
		/// Clean up any resources being used.
		/// </summary>
			if (components)
				delete components;
	private: System::Windows::Forms::Button^  button1;
	private: System::Windows::Forms::Button^  button2;

		/// <summary>
		/// Required designer variable.
		/// </summary>
		System::ComponentModel::Container ^components;

#pragma region Windows Form Designer generated code
		/// <summary>
		/// Required method for Designer support - do not modify
		/// the contents of this method with the code editor.
		/// </summary>
		void InitializeComponent(void)
			this->button1 = (gcnew System::Windows::Forms::Button());
			this->button2 = (gcnew System::Windows::Forms::Button());
			// button1
			this->button1->Font = (gcnew System::Drawing::Font(L"Microsoft Sans Serif", 36));
			this->button1->Location = System::Drawing::Point(13, 13);
			this->button1->Name = L"button1";
			this->button1->Size = System::Drawing::Size(309, 111);
			this->button1->TabIndex = 0;
			this->button1->Text = L"Backup";
			this->button1->UseVisualStyleBackColor = true;
			this->button1->Click += gcnew System::EventHandler(this, &Form1::button1_Click);
			// button2
			this->button2->Font = (gcnew System::Drawing::Font(L"Microsoft Sans Serif", 36));
			this->button2->Location = System::Drawing::Point(13, 139);
			this->button2->Name = L"button2";
			this->button2->Size = System::Drawing::Size(309, 111);
			this->button2->TabIndex = 1;
			this->button2->Text = L"Restore";
			this->button2->UseVisualStyleBackColor = true;
			this->button2->Click += gcnew System::EventHandler(this, &Form1::button2_Click);
			// Form1
			this->AutoScaleDimensions = System::Drawing::SizeF(6, 13);
			this->AutoScaleMode = System::Windows::Forms::AutoScaleMode::Font;
			this->ClientSize = System::Drawing::Size(334, 262);
			this->Name = L"Form1";
			this->Text = L"Windows 7 Genuine Activation Backup";

#pragma endregion
	private: System::Void button1_Click(System::Object^  sender, System::EventArgs^  e) {
        //This is where the code for the "Backup" button should be
	private: System::Void button2_Click(System::Object^  sender, System::EventArgs^  e) {
        //This is where the code for the "Restore" button should be
