string $dir = `system ("dir")`;
string $buffer[];
tokenize($dir,"\n",$buffer);
tokenize($buffer[size($buffer)-2],",",$buffer);
tokenize($buffer[1]," ",$buffer);
string $result = substituteAllString($buffer[0], ".", "");
print ($result + " " + $buffer[1]);


That' s for the Directory of your open file

Found out that was for Vista.
Windows XP uses some other "dir" formating.

So this is for XP:

string $dir = `system ("dir")`;
string $buffer[];
tokenize($dir,"\n",$buffer);
tokenize($buffer[size($buffer)-2],",",$buffer);
tokenize($buffer[0]," ",$buffer);
string $result = substituteAllString($buffer[2], ".", "");
print ($result + " " + $buffer[3]);

Vista itself sucks, but maya runs smooth ;)

I 've been told about poor OpenGL support but never tried.
Can you do me a favour? What does vista return when queried:
about -os;
