Customize IDE commands

Hi everyone,

I want to add a new custom command to the IDE using "Customize IDE command" option. I have successfully added a command to run a batch file and it runs ok. However, if I use the predefined variables such as %projectFileDir, to specify a directory, it does not run my batch file. I think this is because the expanded value is surrounded in double quotes (".." ) , and Windows doesn't handle that. This also prevents me specifying files on the command line using the predefined variables. This makes the predefined variables a lot less useful than they could be.

Is there a way around this problem, or am I stuck with it?

I am using CW v5.6.
