Opening folder in Win7/64

Recommended Posts

I have existing scripts that open a folder using the command


In all versions of Windows up to Vista the result was a window with a text parm of "FolderView".

In Win7/64, that parm turns out to be "ShellView" for some reason.

It isn't obvious - to me anyway - whether there are functional differences between the two. And even if there are, I wouldn't be surprised if they are effectively identical for my purposes.

My question is: can that command [or equivalent] open "FolderView" in Win7/64? Or must I modify my code to allow for both possibilities?
