I'm trying to get working following code:

$path = "C:\\@\\";
$dp = opendir($path);

and get following error:

OpenDir: Invalid argument (errno 22)

Any chance to make it working with '@' character in path?

TIA,
dumb

Try this:
$dp = opendir('c:/@');

I tested it using the following script and it worked correctly:
<?php
if ($handle = opendir('c:/@'))
{
      while (false !== ($file = readdir($handle)))
         {
              if ($file != "." && $file != "..")
                  {
                        echo $file;
              }
       }
}
else
      echo "Unable to Open Folder";
?>
