I wanted to add a little feature to one of my script which would have be to open a folder from a given path by the user. Unfortunately I have something like a bug/restriction with the "system" command of Maya. I'm using Windows 7 x64 and Maya 2013.
While this work without any problem (it opens the C:\ drive with a new explorer window) :
system("explorer c: ");
The following one doesn't work and open the "user" folder ("My documents" folder) :
system("explorer d: ");
Maya is installed on my C:\ drive, so I suspect a sort of restriction... Is there a possible workaround ? Both commands work fine under a command line window, it looks like with the "system" command it's not the case.
