Hallow every one,

I am trying to write a simple batch Program and that requires Command line syntax of
"Windows Explorer" (Explorer.exe)

On the web I have find the syntax bellow on http://support.microsoft.com/kb/130510
EXPLORER.EXE [/n][/e][,/root,<object>][[,/select],<sub object>]

But it didn't works for me !!

On that web page they suggested "explorer /select,c:\windows\calc.exe" (without dabble quotes) for opening the windir and selecting the calc.exe

But, it is not opening the windir and selecting the Calc.exe, it opening the %userpofile% folder.

On that web page, they also mentioned that the syntax for :-
(Microsoft Windows 95
Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0 Standard Edition
Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 4.0 Developer Edition
Microsoft Windows 98 Standard Edition
Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition
Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition)

and i am using Microsoft Windows Vista Home premium, is that the problem??

if it is, what is the Windows Explorer Command line syntax for Vista??


Can any one Help me??.................
Please, Help Me.............
