It looks like you can avoid this issue altogether if you follow 
Sjoerd's suggestion. (Thanks, Sjoerd. Nice one.)

However, if you do go with the shell function, setting the 
shellCommand to "cmd.exe" is recommended for NT in the MC reference. 
I've never got any shell command to work on NT without setting it, so 
I'd suggest you do it. Don't set it for Win 95/98; the default is set 
to work for those. But I don't know for Win 2000. Luckily, no one I'm 
developing for (mainly corporates) has any plans to install Win 2000 
until next year. Does anyone know?

On the same topic, can anyone using Win 2000 tell us what is returned 
by the the systemVersion function?
