@full and @truename Issue Resolving Network Share Names

Apr 29, 2009
Redmond, WA
%@full[c:\tools\batch\runme.bat\..\] = c:\tools\batch
%@full[\\server\tools\batch\runme.bat\..\] = \\server\tools\batch\runme.bat\..\

I'd expect the second line to resolve similar to the first, to "\\server\tools\batch". @truename behaves the same in this instance. Is this a bug?

WAD; it's a consequence of a Windows API limitation. (UNCs are unevenly
supported in Windows.)
