Have you tried file://k:/music/mp3 ?

Actually I think it has to be



Any ideas are appreciated.

To give you a little more info.

\n = new line
\t = tab
\r = carriage return

These are all special characters when you are talking about a string

in some cases, a '\' before any char will escape the char.  So, what you
end up with is this

index_program      = C:\gnump3d2\bin\gnump3d-index.bat
will be this
index_program      = C:\gnump3d2\bin\gnump3d-index.bat

index_program      = C:\\gnump3d2\\bin\\gnump3d- index.bat
will be this
index_program      = C:\gnump3d2\bin\gnump3d-index.bat

but this
index_program      = C:/gnump3d2/bin/gnump3d-index.bat
equates to this
index_program      = C:\gnump3d2\bin\gnump3d- index.bat

Hope this explains it a little better
