Here is my directory structure:

g:\ <--Location of Player Files.

g:\installed apps\install.bat

I am trying to launch the install.bat from the root of the HD.

I have tried it 2 different ways.

1st tried using <path>"\installed apps\install.bat"<path>
Then <path>"installed apps\install.bat"<path>
I got no response when trying this.

2nd attempt, Used the same line but took out the <path> on both ends.

This resulted in a window popping up that says:

The "Install.bat" application could not be found."

I hit OK, then install.bat runs.

Anybody seen this before or know how to get around it?

Thanks,

Troy

Believe I have tracked it down to the path name having spaces in it. Is there a way around this? I tried double quotes but that didn't help.

You need to supply double quotes outside the <path> token like:
"<path>\installed apps\install.bat<path>"
