Hello,

can someone confirm, that the suite don't starts an EXE, if his name includes brackets?

Regards

Re: Suite - Brackets in EXE name

I believe square brackets are used to indicate substitutions, and there isn't an escape syntax right now. As an alternative you might add a property such that things resolve to include the square brackets. E.g. if the exe you're trying to run is named abc[def]ghi.exe, you could add a property def with value [def].

Re: Suite - Brackets in EXE name

Thanks Michael,

I used the wrong word.
Not brackets but parentheses.
"(" or ")".

Sorry

Re: Suite - Brackets in EXE name

I don't see any problems with this case. I copied notepad2.exe to Fake (parens).exe, added it as a package, and it ran. I then added it to the support files, added a button with the action {Open LAUNCHME}, and added a formatted property LAUNCHME with value [SETUPSUPPORTDIR]Fake (parens).exe, and it launched there too. What case isn't working for you? Does anything show up in the /debuglog?

Re: Suite - Brackets in EXE name

Thankyou Michael for your efforts,

it was not the name of the file, it was a problem of the associated feature.
After deleting and rebuilding of the feature, the problem occured no more.
It remains, that I don't know, what caused the problem.

Thanks
Johannes
