    Exclamation Run External is stripping quotes in dBpoweramp R17.1 for Mac

    Quote marks are being removed from command line entries in the Run External DSP.

    Correction: Looks like it's just stripping Double Quote marks "
    However, my command still isn't running.
    For example, in the mac terminal all of these produce the same result:
    open '/Users/wprg/Dropbox/Hello to Mom'
    open "/Users/wprg/Dropbox/Hello to Mom"
    open /Users/wprg/Dropbox/Hello\ to\ Mom

    But using any of those in the DSP Run External doesn't seem to produce the result (opening the directory in file manager).

    Thanks for the bug report.

    Double quotation marks should be used, but they were not handled correctly by dBpoweramp.

    This has just been fixed in new R17.1 beta-

    So, I have updated and the new release does not strip the quotes away, but it also does not run the command. For example, if I have settings such as: After Batch and Command Line = open "/Users/myusername/Downloads" It still doesn't successfully run the command to open the Finder at the given location. (that command does work in the Terminal, btw)

    Screenshot of settings: https://cln.sh/OE2g01

    Thanks for testing.

    Please specify program = open and command line = "/path/to/folder" instead.
