@new123456 The point Xantec made still stands though. Manufacturers make hundreds of millions of cards, so unless they get multiple 'manufacturer IDs' they'll almost have to repeat IDs.

Unless the thief reinstalled the OS, unfortunately. But even if he merely deleted the original account and created a new one, this method should still work! Let's hope he was lazy or incompetent.

Hmm, this answer (in the linked thread) seems to imply %W actually behaves somewhat different than documented - at least in the observed results. But the poster didn't specify whether he right-clicked from within the folder, or merely on the folder icon, which might explain the deviation.

So would %V or %W be the proper usage? It seems like %V just imitates %W in certain circumstances. So should I always just use %W then, if I want the directory?

Yea, I found that answer after kinokijuf posted! I don't think the question is a duplicate, rather I think the answer to this question is the other topic. =P I'll add the link into kino's answer.

I was thinking that myself, but I wasn't sure. It's not directly programming related - it has to do with the format of shell commands on Windows.
