Your code

  `command.com /c \for-programs\use\\tidy\\tidy.exe -v`

works on XP?

It would be great if you could test it on Win9*.

What's the difference to the code above which I tested already and which 
doesn't work?
Are you sure about the "\\" mixed with "\"?

Here is your code and a line with an added "\":

  puts `command.com /c \\for-programs\use\\tidy\\tidy.exe -v`
  puts `command.com /c \\for-programs\\use\\tidy\\tidy.exe -v`

Neither produces any output. That's the problem :(
