i am using 6.0 and trying to use the xp_cmdshell procedure.
master..xp_cmdshell 'dir C:\winnt35\system\*.EXE' works.
master..xp_cmdshell 'dir C:\*.EXE' returns the output
Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is C486-8532
Directory of C:\
File Not Found
of course there are .exe's in the root directory.
