Hi Jackie and Martain: The alt space, e, p method worked like a charm. Thanks. I am reading up on batch files a little now. I have not yet found those hot keys in the google articles I have read. Now to try and build a VBScript to try and access my newly registered com dll in the GAC. Let me know if you know where you initially found those keystrokes - I may find them as I continue bedtime reading on batch files later.
Thanks again: Rick USA----- Original Message ----- From: "Martin Slack" <m.g.slack@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

Hi Rick,As Jackie said, the tab key will do autocomplete. So use the cd command incrementally to get to the folder containing sn.exe. That is:1 Type cd followed by the first few letters of the first element of the path then tab. This will complete the first part of the path and include quotes correctly. 2 Type enter which will move your current working directory slightly. Type cd if you want to see the cwd. 3 Continue typing cd followed by the first few letters of the next element of the path, followed by tab then enter. 4 When you have got to the folder containing sn.exe, you can invoke it by just typing sn.exe. You will stay in that folder until you start to cd again.hth, Martin----- Original Message ----- From: "RicksPlace" <ofbgmail@xxxxxxxxx>To: <programmingblind@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Tuesday, March 15, 2011 2:50 PM Subject: CommandLine PathHi: In Windows XP I am trying to execute sn.exe which is in a long file path with spaces. I tried typing cd and then pasting the path enclosed in quotes into the command window but the paste does not seem to be working - nothing is being pasted. Is there some way to navigate around the command structure without having to type everything all the time? I am thinking of copy and paste, a batch file or a script or anything that I can use over and over without typing my fingers to the bone. I don't know whether to try building a batch file or script or whatever to just execute this program and others. If you have one, a sample would help allot so I can research the technicals you used.Rick USA __________View the list's information and change your settings at http://www.freelists.org/list/programmingblind
