I'm using version 2.45a in Vista SP2, and the $validate() function is only validating the filename, not the full path. A short example:
$validate(%album%\%artist%, '') only evaluates %artist% for invalid characters, if there are any present in %album% they just get removed.
However, $validate(%album% %artist%, '') validates everyting (album and artist)
The help file cleary states: Remove invalid characters from file name/file paths so this should work for file paths too and not only for the filename right?
I was using this with 2.44 and it worked ok, should I be using another syntax for validating the path AND filename?
