Sending files - run command option


Recommended Posts

I would like to get Express Dictate to send using putty (pscp.exe), however, I cannot get it to work on my client's computers.

 

I tried the following line for the run command:

 

c:\putty\pscp.exe `%filepath` <user>@server\:

 

And a number of other combinations such as:

c:\putty\pscp.exe %filepath <user>@server:

 

I managed to get this working on my vista laptop, however, it gave me this same sort of grief the first time I tried getting it working. Since that first attempt, I left it for a few days and then it just sort of magically "worked".

 

I also am quite confused as to why the program "sometimes" gives me an error message when send fails to execute the external program and other times just simply fails silently.

The filepath variable should end with a %, and you probably want to use double quotes, not single.

"%filepath%"

"%filepath%"

 

OK... that was a typo, I did in fact use the %filepath% variable. However, I will try surrounding it in "" instead of ``. Thanks for the tip.
