I myself have used Virtual PC before. However it does not support 64 bit guests. That was when I decided to switch over to Virtual Box. It does have support for 64 bit guests and it seems to run relatively stable. I will *not* use VMWARE. One of my most important criteria for virtualization is the c...

I think the point 5eraph is trying to make is that you are "compiling" this script, correct? If so, removal of the absolute file name means it will not look for that script where it should not look for it. By putting the file in with the script, it will *make* it work anywhere.

It is probably not possible with this program, but I might as well ask anyway.

Is this program a 32 bit process?

If it is, is there a way to make this work in a x64 bit environment to install 64 bit programs?

EDIT: Probably also should have asked if this was still even being kept up with too?

To rename something that has a space in it, you must use quotes.

rename "something with quotes.txt" "something else with quotes.txt"

As long as both file names have quotes, you should be good to go.

EDIT: Note that <ren> is just a shortened form of the <rename> command.
