Having migrated my PC across to W10, I am getting an odd behaviour when executing a script that works perfectly under W7... Wondered if anyone else had come across this:
So, my script runs an external program called Deep Sky Planner. It opens two reports to calculate positions in the night sky for each of the 8 planets, plus the Moon and Sun. It then saves each of these reports as a HTML file, and a PDF file. I upload these to my astronomical societies web-site. One report is a set of basic data, then a more detailed one is run.
Each report is named with the month-year-object, so 1015Venus.html or 1015Sun_det.pdf
Under W7 (64bit), no problem. On my W10 machine, the change of the filename to be saved is not recognised by the 'Save As' dialogue box, even though the new file name is clearly there in the text edit box! So, I get an error saying that the file already exists!
I've attached a picture of the dialog box error so you can see what I mean.
I've also attached my code (feel free to rip this apart )
Has anyone else seen this? Any suggestions??
