the extension (unc) by default isn't a windows executable. open a dos window and type in SET and hit enter. under windows 2000 i know to look for something that looks like this. PATHEXT=.COM;.EXE;.BAT;.CMD;.VBS;.VBE;.JS;.JSE;.WSF;.WSH

all those extnsions are executables. i dunno if there is a way to intergrate the (unc) without having to call an external program.

Good idea Shady! Standard windows cmd have problems if it start in a unc path!

@beerman

What is the meaning of you answer... Why should someone add .unc as executable extension?

Maybe you should read what unc is: HERE.

oops, sorry was under the pretense they were wanting to execute something. with an extension of some sort that was not a native executable. try to execute an autoit script from command line without having to call back to autoit executable.. :D:huh2::):lol:
