2nd yes Vista does handle paths with spaces differently. How so i can not say for sure but i know it does. I think the spaces need to be filled with _ in order to work right.
Also could it be the UAC preventing the user from doing this correctly? Has the user tried to run this with Admin rights by right clicking on it?
thanks for the response. It might be possible to change the directory names. I tried it. There were several minutes of intense disk activity as presumably Flight Simulator updated its indexes, but after that it worked just fine. Unfortunately this might be a problem if the user has many add-ons, so it wouldn't be a very good solution.
The user did mention that he often gets warning messages from Vista, presumably due to extra security features. But he reported there were no such messages when this problem occurs. But could the security really cause a problem when running a batch file that happens to have spaces in the path? Unfortunately I - and probably the user - don't really know enough about Vista security, so I could hardly advise him without a lot more information on the subject.
