in reply to passing bits of an array to an executable a piece at a time

Mark,

If you are passing these arguments to a console app, remember, you only have 255 characters to work with. This includes spaces and the name of the program. If you pass more than 255, your string will be truncated.

    That certainly is a matter of which environment he runs it it. I'm quite sure there is also a great difference between the various windows versions.

      The information that I posted regarding the console argument limit comes from the Microsoft OEM Preinstall SDK for Windows 98, and 2000. I don't remember if Windows ME had a different number.

      The OEM Preinstall SDK is used by companies like Compaq, and Dell where they install the operating system and other applications in an automated fashion.
