@ComSpec character problem

Recommended Posts


Open a CMD prompt
Type CMD /?
Look for parameter of /U

The description of /U is:


Causes the output of internal commands to a pipe or file to be Unicode

So use the below code.

Run('"' & @ComSpec & '" /u /c dir /b > file_names.txt', '', @SW_HIDE)

Tested with ççūūşş.txt.

With /U returned ççūūşş.txt.

Without /U returned ‡‡uuss.txt.
