Thanks a lot for posting this revised version! :-))
Your new version now works fine in my side:
function GetCDName pLetter
set the hideConsoleWindows to true
put pLetter & cr & "dir" into
put shell("c:\temp.bat") into tResult
delete file "c:/temp.bat"
return line 6 of tResult
>From the resulting line, i could get the full
CD name even if the name has spaces like "30 OCT 03"
But still, i do not understand why the engine
executed always the first part of the "IF"
statement: if the shellCommand is "cmd"...
when in fact the shellCommand is "command.com"
Thanks again and...
