@UserName Syntax within a Dos directory Name

Recommended Posts

Syekick

I'm trying to duplicate the dos command

cipher /a /e /q /s:"C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\my documents"

In AutoIt, I've tried many variations but find (so far) that the following line is the only one that does nor give syntax errors when checking the file. But of course, it does not work.

Run("cipher.exe /a /e /q /s:c:\C:\Documents and Settings\" & @UserName & "my documents")

Toss me a bone here :D

Perhaps using @MyDocumentsDir will do?

Run('cipher.exe /a /e /q /s:"' & @MyDocumentsDir & '"')

Bone tossed...

:D

ROFL, Obviously, I didn't know that command existed. I'll have to review them. Thank you!
