<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

SetEnv, DirOut, C:\\Directory-Output.txt

; Note: Run DOS batch file to extract the directory info

RunWait, Cmd.exe /c Dir C:\\(dirname) /s /w > "%DirOut%"

FileReadLine, Input,%DirOut%,4

StringMid, DirFiles,Input,0015,0006

This will read the 4th line of C:\Directory-Output.txt and variable %DirFiles% will contain the first 6 characters of the directory name.
