    Unidentifiable command line parameters

    I find various entries in the registry that use the % parameters like this:
    %SystemRoot%Explorer.exe /e,/idlist,%I,%L
    I've been able to find little info on them, save for this little explanation:

    Explorer.exe /e,/idlist,%I,%L From Folder..Explore in the registry
    %I - ID number
    %L - Long filename

    What are they exactly and is there any documentation on them?

    thanks
    Alan

    Re: Unidentifiable command line parameters

    Judging from Scott's comment, it sounds good. Unfortunately nothing comes up on my browser <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>. I do see a download icon, but then I'm asked for login details. Does the article mention the %L, %I etc. parameters?

    Re: Unidentifiable command line parameters

    You need to allow scripts to run - something then flashes up about 'iPaper loading...' or similar. I guess it has some archive-retrieval system running. Does it work in IE? - if not, just read the attached <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
