Win 7 Pro 64 Folder Name RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have users with Win 7 Pro 64 and 32 bit.  Some are also using XP Pro.

    Once in a while, my user puts a dot "." as part of the folder name by mistake.

    This causes problems because normally, I parse the pathname and a "." or dot indicate a filename.

    Is there a way to generate a error message or prevent this from happening when I have a user doing this by mistake???

    Thank You,

  • Hi, after checking the issue, it seems this is a general Windows System issue. As this forum focuses on Windows SteadyState specific issues, this inquiry would best be posted to  Windows 7 forum:
