Since I am fairly new to VEdit I am not sure if I am doing something wrong or if this is an actual bug...
I am trying to use VEdit from the command line in quiet mode to sort a text file. The command I am using is:
>>vpw -q -c SortMerge("1,16",0,FSize) C:\petr\test2.dat -a c:\petr\test2out.dat<<
(without the >> << around the entire command).
From going through the documentation I think that this should sort the entire test2.dat file using characters from column 1 thru column 16 as the sort key. The text file contains numbers as follows:
The sorted list should be saved in the test2out.dat file as specified with the -a switch.
What I get from the command is >The instruction at "0x00426e1a" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "read".<
When I try the command without the -q switch it works perfectly but leaves me in the VEdit application, I would like to have it perform the sort without any GUI showing.
I am running on W2K Pro and this happens after a fresh boot without any other applications running (other than all the normal services), this machine also has Network Associates VirusScan NT 4.0.3a on it. I tried disabling the virus scan and the error still occurs. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
