    Hello!

    I am attempting to set up shortcuts for my True Image Tasks. I am using version 10 latest build. Operating system is Vista Home Premium. Before setting up the shortcut, I created a batch file to test the routine:

    "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Acronis\TrueImage\TrueImageService.exe" /script:"C:\ProgramData\Acronis\TrueImage\Scripts\8FBC9C47-F204-4326-AD90-9BB396F42D02.tib.tis"

    The file is obviously my script name. The command opened the script to be run, but I got the following error:

    Failed to backup file or folder 'C:'.
    Specified file does not exist. (0x40011)
    function = "GetFileAttributesW",
    filename = "\\?\C:\\"
    Tag = 0xA8A1022BD18AE20F
    The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect (0xFFF0)
    code = 8007007B
    Tag = 0xBD28FDBD64EDB8A6: Retry/Ignore/Cancel

    A dialogue popped up offering to retry (didn't work)/ignore (when I pressed this button, the backup completed). As stated, when I clicked ignore in the dialogue, the backup completed successfully. I changed User Account Control to elevate without a prompt, but I still got the error.

    I looked at HKCR in the registry re tis and tisfile. There were no references to anything other than default icon in tisfile. I found another post in this forum showing a modified setup for tisfile, and merged it in the registry. The modified registry entries are below:

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\tisfile]
    @="Acronis True Image Script"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\tisfile\DefaultIcon]
    @="C:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\Acronis\\TrueImage\\TrueImageService.exe,1"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\tisfile\Shell]

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\tisfile\Shell\open]
    @="&Execute Task Script"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\tisfile\Shell\open\command]
    @="\"C:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\Acronis\\TrueImage\\TrueImageService.exe\" /script:\"%1\""

    I also associated tis files with TrueImageService.exe.

    Sorry for the long post, but I want to make sure the info is complete to avoid multiple posts requesting additional info. Can anybody tell me how to get this right? Thanks in advance.

    Thank you for replying to my post. I would be happy to send the information in a support request, but I sould advise you that I have already done so (without as much detail), and was sent a terse reply stating that True Image Home does not support scripting, etc; and I should consider purchasing workstation 9.1. If you monitor this post, I will put the information here. If not, I'm afraid I'll get another stock reply stating that it is not supported. Please advise. Thanks once again.

    Regards
    Graham Derreck

    Thank you again for the reply. Your product is not only fast and accurate, but you take care of your customers. Rather rare to have both in this day and age. I have just opened my email, and viola! I have a note from Anton Zamkovoy asking me to create shortcuts and test. I can only assume you were able to push the right buttons. It is not my intention to cast any of your excellent people in a bad light, so I'll skip the case #. I will point out that it was NOT Anton who sent me the earlier reply in question. Thank you so much for taking the time to help me out. It is this type of attitude that has built and maintained the loyal cutomer base you have earned.

    Is not the script file (the .tis file) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Acronis\TrueImage\Scripts ?

    That's the typical location. Worth checking.

    good luck, sh
