I need help with command syntax especially quotes

Recommended Posts

I have repeated problems getting command syntax correct when using quotes and macros. Is there a simple method to getting it right...

Here is an example of my current problem command...

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & 'c:\decay.exe /a5 /b /i /n ' & chr(34)& @UserProfileDir & chr(34) & ' '& '\Local Settings\Temp\*.*'"

This is intended to run a dos progam "decay" on my temp folder in a winxp environment.. I want to use the @userprofiledir so I can use this command on others computers...

Thanks so very much for any help provided!

Try this :

RunWait(@ComSpec & "' /c '" &  "'c:\decay.exe /a5 /b /i /n '" & chr(34)& @UserProfileDir & chr(34) "' \Local  Settings\Temp\*.*'")

Cheers, FireFox.

I copied and pasted your command and it did not work... In the meantime, I was able to get it to work like this..

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & 'c:\decay.exe /a5 /b /d /i /n ' & chr(34)& @UserProfileDir & chr(34) & ' '& '\Local Settings\Temp\*.*')

Not much difference, but it works... This illustrates my problem.. There must be some easy rules for placing quotes in a command line...

Thanks for trying!
