This seems strange, when I run the command:
ExternalWindowsOSProcess command: 'del "C:\MediaVault\BBC\test.txt"'

I get an error, with or without double quotes around the file name.

It is strange because I use it three times in my method. The first two
invocations launch external programs with long command strings. They work
fine, but when I want to clean up, the process fails. The test case above,
executed from Workspace, fails consistently.

It fails  in 5.2/64 and 5.2.32

I have not tried it in older versions
