Is there a particular reason that users are the ones who have to add the escape sequences to Wine commands, instead of users typing a Windows-style argument and Wine parsing it into escaped sequences for itself?<br><br>(I want to know if it&#39;s a case of &#39;just because&#39; or &#39;because no one has written a parser&#39; or &#39;there is a requirement within Wine of &lt;such and such&gt;&#39;)

You were close. You can&#39;t put the arguments and the program exe all in<br>one string. Try this.<br><br>wine &quot;C:/Program Files/dynaterm8/dynaterm.exe&quot; –connect:\&quot;con1\&quot;<br><br>or<br><br>wine C:/Program\ Files/dynaterm8/dynaterm.exe –connect:\&quot;con1\&quot;
<br><br>both of those types work for me<br><br>On 5/28/07, John Evans &lt;<a href="mailto:john.evans.m@googlemail.com">john.evans.m@googlemail.com</a>&gt; wrote:<br>&gt;<br>&gt;<br>&gt;<br>&gt;<br>&gt; I have an application called dynaterm which I can run successfully under
<br>&gt; wine but to achieve 110% success I need to pass this application a parameter<br>&gt; which must contain double quotes<br>&gt;<br>&gt; E.G.&nbsp;&nbsp;C:/Program Files/dynaterm8/dynaterm.exe –connect:&quot;con1&quot;<br>&gt;
<br>&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;So I&#39;ve tried escaping the quotes and setting the launcher command to<br>&gt;<br>&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;wine &quot;C:/Program Files/dynaterm8/dynaterm.exe –connect:\&quot;con1\&quot;&quot;<br>&gt;<br>&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;or using \\&quot; etc but with no success.
<br>&gt;<br>&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;Can anyone offer any ideas on passing the double quotes within the<br>&gt; parameters to the command wine can execute.<br>&gt;<br>&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;Regards<br>&gt;<br>&gt;<br>&gt;<br>&gt; John Evans<br>&gt;<br>&gt;<br>
