What I would need to check on is if the values still line up or not...by Pete (Login The-Universe)
Someone posted not too long ago that they don't and I tested that and found it to be true:
x$ = ENVIRON$("CMDLINE")
DO UNTIL INSTR(x$, "\") = 0
x$ = MID$(x$, INSTR(x$, "\") + 1)
x$ = MID$(x$, 1, INSTR(LCASE$(x$), ".exe") + 4)
That returns the name of the current running exe in 98, but returns nothing in XP.
Sometime I need to check the order of the return and see if it is just a difference in the STRING associated with environ4 between the two systems or if it is the order of output generated, or both.
