Have you thought of renaming the file?


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I automate it for others and can not rename the file.

Can you copy it to another filename and run the other file? Why can't you rename it, and don't repeat what you just said I got that part, what I don't understand is if you're the one doing the automation, why can't you rename it?

EDIT: BTW, here's how you'd quote it so that it should work correctly.

$Test = '"Intel®_Media_SDK_x64.msi"'
MsgBox(262144,'Debug line ~' & @ScriptLineNumber,'Selection:' & @lf & '$Test' & @lf & @lf & 'Return:' & @lf & $Test) ;### Debug MSGBOX

Also, if the ® symbol is actually that symbol, using "( R)" won't work for the file name, they're 2 different strings.

Find your char code:

Run ( "Intel" & Chr(174) & "_Media_SDK_x64.msi" )

finding char codes (go to internet, or):

For $i=0 To 1000
ConsoleWrite ( $i & " " & Chr($i) & @CRLF)
Next

Edit: just realized the help file has them: ASCII Character Codes
