Win XP SP3 Command Prompt
Got this workstation, and I want to find out via CMD shortnames for paths.
I know that if I had "Program Files" it would be Progr~1 due to the 8 characters rule. So if I wanted to get the path for "C:\Document and Settings\TestUser\Local Settings" path it should be
"C:\Progr~1\Testuser\Locals~1" right? ah also Local Settings is a hidden folder.
Running this in command prompt window as the user in CMD with this command.
Dir /W /AH
It doesnt shorten the path? any reason why?'
Might of found out why
If I have helped you, thank me please.
