Hi!
I get parameters in a batch file but I get them '"' (like: "AAA").
I want to strip them from the '"' if they have such.
Is there a way to do this?
Thanks!

Couple ways to do this:

Strip off first and last characters:
     set VAR=%VAR:~1,-1%

or

Replace all quotation marks with nothing:
     set VAR=%VAR:"=%
