The issue is basically this, when the full path to Blat is used on the command line, or within a script, and that path uses quotation marks for only the path itself, the command line is not parsed in 32-bit mode the same way as it is parsed in 64-bit mode. This difference means that Blat is given one additional argument that should not be present, this additional value is the name of Blat executable.
"R:\Program Files\NoInstallReqd\Blat"\blat.exe âh
would result in Blat being give the following before it has a chance to do anything:
argument #1 = R:\Program Files\NoInstallReqd\Blat
argument #2 = \blat.exe
argument #3 = âh
The middle argument from above is not right, it was supposed to be part of the first argument. The net result is that Blat is not able to find â\blat.exeâ as a message file and will exit with an error.
I would suggest folks go read the thread on Source Forge, then leave comments either at that site and/or post responses here.
