How can I run the following “SHELL” command in VB? It works fine in PowerBasic, but VB 3.0 doesn’t like it.
SHELL “DIR *.BKP > FILES.LST”Any ideas?
Shell “COMMAND.COM /C DIR *.BKP > FILES.LST”Commands like DIR are part of the command interpreter. Normally, the Shell command just runs the program. Routing the DIR command through COMMAND.COM should let it run correctly.
