Well sometimes I deserved what I got - forgot that using /Program Files/
meant "" were essential :-((
(And I still can't get : or ; as keywords to stick into my brain either).
I naively expected more of these to work.
# : C:\\Program~1\\xsltproc_win32\\xsltproc.exe # NOT OK - missing "".
: "C:\\Program Files\\xsltproc_win32\\xsltproc.exe" # Worked OK.
# : "C:/Program Files/xsltproc_win32/xsltproc.exe" # Worked OK.
#: "C:/Progra~1/xsltproc_win32/xsltproc.exe" # worked OK
# actually "C:/Program Files/xsltproc_win32/xsltproc.exe" according to
# XSLT-FO processor from RenderX.com
: # XEP batch filename
# Note you may need to increase the Java heap size.
# "C:/Progra~1/renderx/xep/xep.bat" # OK
# C:/Progra~1/renderx/xep/xep.bat # OK
# "C:/Program Files/renderx/xep/xep.bat" # Definitely does NOT seem to
"C:\\Program Files\\renderx\\xep\\xep.bat" # NOT OK - despite "" and \\
#'C:\Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
: # Java executable called by xep.bat.
# C:/PROGRA~1/Java/jre6 #OK
# "C:/PROGRA~1/Java/jre6" # OK
#"C:/Program files/Java/jre6" # OK
"C:\\Program files\\Java\\jre6" # OK
#"C:\Program files\Java\jre6" # NOT OK
Unless I've got fat finger trouble again ;-)
