|I am running the following batch file in XP. The START /W commands are there to |
ensure that each program completes properly and in sequence.
START /W c:\mydown~1\instal~1\firefo~1\SpeedyFox\speedy~1.exe /default_profile
START /W c:\progra~1\clearers\genera~1.bat
START /W c:\progra~1\ccleaner\ccleaner.exe /AUTO
START C:\Windows\system32\shutdown.exe -s -t 00
It's fine. It runs speedyfox, then another batch file then CCleaner and finally shuts
down the computer. I can tell it runs CCleaner because its icon flashes up in the notification area of the taskbar. For testing I've remmed out the last line with ::
Now here's the thing that has me foxed. If I replace the CCleaner line with the following
it no longer runs CCleaner and there are no error messages:
START /W "c:\program files\ccleaner\ccleaner.exe" /AUTO
It seems it doesn't like long file names because the same thing happens with speedyfox
if I use the same long file format in that line.
Any ideas please?
We all live on the same ball.
