I am trying to get iPodder to send downloaded podcasts
to Palm Quick Install so will automatically go to my
Palm. I have tested the command to be entered via the
Command Prompt and works.

I then updated the Preferences - Advanced tab -
selected the Run this command after each download box
then added the following in the command box:
"C:\Program Files\palmOne\QuickInstall.exe" "%f"

The following appears in the log after downloading a
podcast:
There was an error running this command: "C:\Program
Files\palmOne\QuickInstall.exe" "C:\Documents and
Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Podcasts\The Tech
Night Owl LIVE\nightowl_051124.mp3"

However, if I cut and paste the above command to the
Command Prompt, the command works:
"C:\Program Files\palmOne\QuickInstall.exe"
"C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My
Documents\Podcasts\The Tech Night Owl
LIVE\nightowl_051124.mp3"

Why is iPodder reporting the command as an error?

    I'm only guessing but try (as workaround AND to help
    identify cause):

    1. Short filename to remove need for spaces in the EXE name.
    2. Running command via CMD.EXE, that is prefix with:
    CMD.EXE /c
    3. A variation of 2, particularly if you used a long
    filename in (2) above:
    CMD.EXE /c "[[TheOriginalCommand]]"

    Thanks for the response. Using your suggestions have allowed
    the command to execute (except for 3), ie:
    1. C:\PROGRA~1\palmOne\QuickInstall.exe "%f"
    2. CMD.EXE /c C:\PROGRA~1\palmOne\QuickInstall.exe "%f"
    3. could not get this one working

    It is interesting, the file continued to show downloading
    status until either the command window or the Palm
    QuickInstall windows were closed and then file changed
    status to downloaded.
