_ScreenCapture_Capture("c:\New folder\" & $picnum + 1 & ".jpg")

Note the backslash after New Folder. If that doesn't work, put the whole path and filename inside quotes.

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 hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Same basic issue you were having in this post:

I would suggest some basic troubleshooting before posting, like outputting to the console with ConsoleWrite, or even a MsgBox.
