in reply to Command line arguments not passed in Win7

Please post the output from running the following commands in a cmd.exe shell:

C:\D\test>assoc .pl .pl=Perl C:\D\test>ftype Perl Perl="c:\perl64\bin\perl.exe" "%1" %* C:\D\test>set pathext PATHEXT=.pl;.COM;.EXE;.BAT;.CMD;

    The first 2 commands give the identical results as your example.

    the final one, 'set pathext' shows a lot of file extensions, but NOT .pl! Even though the assoc command appeared to run without error.

    My problem is not that the system doesn't execute perl. It finds and executes perl, but doesn't pass the command line parameters to @ARGV.

      The first 2 commands give the identical results as your example.

      You sure?

      The only thing I am aware of that could be affecting this, is if the ftype were set wrong. For example, if the ftype were set as:

      Perl="c:\perl64\bin\perl.exe" "%1"

      That would disable the passing of arguments:

      C:\test>type argtest.pl #! perl -slw use strict; print for @ARGV; C:\test>ftype Perl Perl="c:\perl64\bin\perl.exe" "%1" C:\test>argtest 1 2 3 4 5 ### NOTE ### no args printed becau +se %* is missing above. C:\test>ftype Perl="c:\perl64\bin\perl.exe" "%1" %* Perl="c:\perl64\bin\perl.exe" "%1" %* C:\test>argtest 1 2 3 4 5 ### NOTE ### Now it works. 1 2 3 4 5
