Run commands and quotation marks problem

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty confused, when I run this in command line:

"c:\Program Files\MKVtoolnix\mkvmerge.exe" -i "d:\1.mkv" > "d:\test.txt"

everithing works great, but the exactly same thing using Run:

Run(@ComSpec & ' /c "c:\Program Files\MKVtoolnix\mkvmerge.exe" -i "d:\1.mkv" > "d:\test.txt"')

doesn't do anything. Find out that

Run(@ComSpec & ' /c mkvmerge -i "d:\1.mkv" > "d:\test.txt"')

works just fine (I have ""c:\Program Files\MKVtoolnix\" on my path)

Can comeone please explain to me what I'm doing wrong? I'm guessing the problem is in the quotation marks?

Big thanks!

command /c expect only COM/EXE/BAT file name without path so you must specify its path in Run's second parameter "working directory".
