Is there anyway i can get AutoIT to convert a string that has spaces to be compatible with DOS? (Yes I have looked in the documentation)

Could u provide an example of what u want to do ?

What about Windows without using AutoIt ?It would be the same as driving a car without an steering Wheel!

Look at FileGetShortName in the helpfile.

Returns the 8.3 short path+name of the path+name passed.

if you use them by a send or Run to a DOS window just protect the filename it works a lot of time
