Hi all I am writing a vb script to install ultraedit but I am having trouble with the concatenation.
strUEdit_Path = "C:\Program Files (x86)\IDM Computer Solutions\UltraEdit"
strCommand2 = strUEdit_Path & "\uedit32.exe" & Chr(34) & " /lic,e="123546|yuhmhilk"" & Chr(34)
WScript.Echo strCommand2
	If objFSO.FolderExists(strUEdit_Path) Then
	WshShell.Run strCommand2,0,True 
	End If

Open in new window


The strcommand2 should translate to the line below
C:\Program Files (x86)\IDM Computer Solutions\UltraEdit\uedit32.exe /lic,e="123546|yuhmhilk"
No matter how I add quotes or chr(34) I keep end of statement error. Please help

Since the editor path has spaces in it I think you will need:

strUEdit_Path = "C:\Program Files (x86)\IDM Computer Solutions\UltraEdit"
strCommand2 = """" & strUEdit_Path & "\uedit32.exe"" /lic,e=""123546|yuhmhilk"""
WScript.Echo strCommand2
If objFSO.FolderExists(strUEdit_Path) Then
  WshShell.Run strCommand2,0,True 
End If
