Run an explorer windows from After effects
on Dec 2, 2016 at 8:36:39 am

Hello,
I try to run an explorer windows via after effects script. My script is based on this :

var path = tabBtns_foldersSpecific_path[myNumber];

if($.os.indexOf("Win") != -1){
cmd = "explorer " + String(path);

}else{
cmd += (("open \"" + String(myGoodPath)) + "\""); // change var path for Mac
}
alert(cmd);
try {
system.callSystem(cmd);
}catch (e){
alert(e);
}

My « path » variable returns :“/e/RESSOURCES “
This variable is defined with this command :
Var myFolderPath = Folder.selectDialog();
Path = String(myFolderPath);

But After effects does not open the correct folder (it opens the default one : “Documents”).
I tried to do it manually, and what is working is : “e:\\ RESSOURCES “

It seems that the good string is with 2 backslashes (“\\”).
Any idea of a solution?
Thank you!
