The update changes how speechmarks in aliases are handled?
« on: June 29, 2015, 02:48:00 AM »
Seems like speechmarks are treated differently

vlcc $$1 | "C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" $$1

used to work, now i get an error dialogue

Windows cannot find '"C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" example'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.

Removing the speechmarks fixes it, but I don't know if that's going to work for all my other aliases.

It there a way to tell FARR to push through speechmarks as though they're part of the string, as though they're just another character? Does that make sense?

Pleas excuse my delay in replying -- I'm out of town until the 26th and have been working furiously on a major update to the DonationCoder forum/website so I've fallen a bit behind in replying to posts about my software.  I will try to remedy that when I get back in town.
