I have v5.5 on my K1000.

I have a script with a run a batch file step that deletes a specific file.  The file path contains spaces so it needs quotation marks around the path.  When I run the script it does nothing.  When I edit the script the double qoutes " have been replaced with "

del "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\IBM System i Access for Windows\Emulator\Create Green Screen Sessions.txt"

becomes

del "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\IBM System i Access for Windows\Emulator\Create Green Screen Sessions.txt"

Has anyone else experienced this?

  • I have the same issue using IE, but it works fine with Chrome or Firefox.
  • I just upgraded to 5.5.90545 and now all my scripts have " instead of quotes.

    Any actual solution for this? I have many scripts that are pretty basic batch files and it would be overkill to have to create VB scripts or something to replace them.

    Is there a way to fix the current scripts I have? Is there a way to escape out special characters in scripts?

As a workaround, you can edit the scripts using another browser other than IE. This seems to be isoloated only to this browser. I ran into the same issue and then I started using Firefox and it seemed to resolve it for me.

  • Thanks for the link. I tried using an escape sequence for the quotes, but that didn't help. I ended up just doing it with a VB script. I also put in a ticket as it looks to be a bug.
    • Submit a support ticket so it can be researched.
  • Doh! This is why my reboot and restart scripts have stopped running. I'm submitting a ticket as well...
