You could kill 2 birds with one stone by getting the executable full path; strip filename to get folder for whatever you use the current folder value for, and the name for the executable to launch.

A folder is corrupt/infected and points to itself. So subfolder is its own parent. Utility could just purge entry from directory table. Then Diskchk can be used to fix misallocations.You aren't referring to the C:\ProgramData\Application Data in Windows 7 by any chance? This is a (multiple) redirected folder that points to itself (I don't know why, but MS thought it was a good idea). It may be because C:\ProgramData\ is a target of C:\Users\All Users, so legacy apps that use "C:\Users\AllUsers\Application Data" get pointed to C:\ProgramData folder.-nickedw (January 16, 2010, 02:34 PM)
i set the screensaver in the registry to run a prog to hide the taskbar completely , wat i need is to be able to tack on 2 more programs this same way of editing the screensaver.exe reg key,You could use the command processor to run multiple programs by making cmd.exe the program that runs and give it the programs to run seperated by &. Say you want to run C:\Program Files\Prog1\Prog1.exe and C:\Program Files\Prog2\Prog2.exe then set the command to run when it enters/exits the screensaver to
also i need to be able to re-run these three prog/shtcuts when comp comes out of idleness, to reverse the hidetaskbar/ showdesktop(restore windows)/ and hidedesktopicons.exe-bunsack (November 26, 2010, 03:20 AM)
I have not been able to find the device in DOS so using a batch file does not seem doable.-wetsmellydog (December 28, 2010, 09:34 AM)
but another problem: on x64 OS FARR cannot start any .lnk (from %MYSTARTMENU%|%COMMONSTARTMENU%)
for build-in/system Windows application from "%windir%\System32\" that doesnt have corresponding x32 analog in "%windir%\SysWOW64\"
on windows 7 x64 you cannot execute:
"Sound Recorder", "Snipping Tool" and other.
maybe FARR, when resolve *.lnk target to %windir%\system32\* can try to find it in %windir%\sysnative too ?-lordmuzer (November 18, 2010, 03:27 PM)
