I think not, but try quotes or replacing spaces with %20? Maybe even use the old DOS naming, Adirxxx~1 etc.

no, %20 doesn't seem to work. DOS naming doesn't seem valid to me. looks like spaces are out. how nice: the users home directory is "\Documents and Settings\....." but we can't use it. I despair... \|||/ O x | ~~~ well, back to the strugle... Ant

DOS naming works, win32's GetShortPathName is what you need.

a simple C++ func :


inline string shortPathName(const string& path ) {
char buffer[MAX_PATH+1];
GetShortPathName(path.c_str(),buffer,MAX_PATH+1);
return buffer;
}
