Dear Friends, My PC is workihg under Windows XP Professional (SP3) and Int Expl 8. My HD (C:\) has the NTFS Partition. I find it quite convenient using the DOS and CMD Programming System (32 bit). My problem is the 8.3 "Short File"DOS naming convention. For example, Lets assume that there are 2 files in my HD, created by the "Notepad " Editor. One is named "GePostStore.txt" and the other is "GePostString.txt" . When I execute the "DIR GePost*.txt ,
I will get the "Gepost~1.txt "and "Gepost~2.txt .I saw a few hints to implement the Lomg File Naming convention, (Which I actually wish to apply in my PC)
All of the solutions used the Registry to solve this issue. I do not like tampering the Registry. Is there an another way to do it? I am a Newbe fere and I dont know where
to expect the answer, Will I get a notification into ny Email ? Thanks a Lot. Geekiss.
