PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Windows XP Embedded SP2 Feature Pack 2007, due to be released on Nov. 1st, will include a redesigned command-line scripting tool. This whitepaper introduces the new tool and gives a few examples of what it can do. XPECMD, as it's called, is said to be a major upgrade to CMI Explorer, the tool that shipped with XPe SP1.

XPECMD supports both 8.3 and long filenames. For example, both of these commands are valid (provided the paths exist in your file system):

(EDIT: Due to limitations of this messageboard, each occurrence of "\\" should be a single backslash. I apparently can't type a single-backslash, though - it disappears once the comment is submitted.)

BUILD myCfg "c:\\My Images\\image1"
BUILD myCfg c:\\MYIMAG~1\\IMAGE1

As with most systems (and the CMD shell itself), paths with spaces must be enclosed in double-quotes to be treated as a single argument. That's the only major requirement.
