  1. The description of this problem can be simplified as such. 1) With NDN open, move to any directory other than the root. 2) type CD \ and press enter (it will appear at the bottom of the screen under the DOS prompt) - the NDN window will now jump to the root directory. This part works fine. NDN accepts DOS commands, and works flawless. Now, the broke part... 1) Create a batch file that simply has one line that states CD \ 2) In NDN, move to any directory other than the root and type the batch file name. When running the batch file, NDN disappears (since it's running a DOS command), but when the NDN window re-appears (after the batch file), NDN has not changed to the root directory - it remains in the same directory. Why would NDN accept hand typed CD commands, but does not accept them in a batch file? Example, my batch file (that contains CD \) is named JUNK.BAT. If I open NDN and move to a random directory, and type junk, the NDN window does not change to the root. If I close NDN and look at the DOS window that was behind the NDN window, it shows... c:\WHATEVER_DIR>JUNK.BAT c:\WHATEVER_DIR>CD \ c:\ c:\WHATEVER_DIR> It's as though it runs the batch, switches to the root, and NDN switches it back to the directory from which you started. I can manually type CD and move to any directory I please, and NDN happily changes as I type them. It's only when I try to do it through a batch file that it is being stubborn. I wrote a batch file to simply copy a file to another name, ran the batch file, and it created the new file with no problems. So it would appear that other batch file commands work fine. It's only the change directory command that seems to be an issue. It's as though NDN allows the directory change, but as soon as the batch file is over, it jumps back to where you started. Thanks for your time!
  2. I had assumed the Winodws version would run in Windows, and would not work under a DOS shell. In reality, the 'Windows version' looks like it is meant to be used with a 'Windows DOS shell'. I have tried it, and the CTL,SHIFT,[ and CTL,SHIFT,] now seem to work okay. Hoever, I now have ran into this problem. I have a batch file that is meant to automate changing directories: @ECHO OFF VERIFY OFF CD \ CD USERS\GRPROG1 This batch file does not change directories as it did in NC. note: C:\USERS\GRPOG1 is a legitimate directory. This batch file successfully goes to the root directory (per the 'CD \'); however, the CD USERS\GRPROG1 doe not work, and the directory stays in the root when the batch is done. I purposely do not specify te drive, as I run this batch from multiple mapped drives. Thanks for your time, -hj
  3. I am using the DOS32 version. I am running it in a DOS shell under W2K SP4. Typing 'ver' in the DOS shell shows "Microsoft Windows 2000 [Version 5.00.2195]". Thanks for your time, -hj
  4. I have updated to the beta copy so that I am matchig the version that you are using. Your suggestion does not change the pane. The keystrokes you mention does cause the opposite pane's directory to show up on the command line, but pressing ENTER does not cause the pane to go to that directory. I can get it to work by manually typing a 'CD' before pressing the ALT+CTL+'[' or ALT+CTL+']'. Is this the way this key is supposed to work? Thanks for your time, -hj
  5. When I change directories, it remembers the last directory the pane was in. When using two panes, and switching drives on the opposite pane, is there a way to make the working pane match the opposite pane? i.e... Left pane = c:\anything\junk Right pane = c:\subdir1 From the left pane, type 'e:' to switch to the e: drive. From the left pane, type 'c:' to switch back to the c: drive. Norton Commander would have placed the left pane on c:\subdir1. NDN instead places the left pane at c:\anything\junk. Is there a way to make it act like NC?
  6. Love NDN! I am brainwashed into using F10 to exit. Is there any way to change the funciton keys so that F9=menu and F10=exit? Thanks! hj
