Shell commands in my INI file are not run. I tried Pre- and Post_Scene_Command,
as well as the corresponding Frame commands.

Options > Script I/O restrictions > Disable Starting Other Programs is NOT

I first tried Pre_Scene_Command=del *.png, since I want to clear all previous
output (for animation). I currently have Pre_Scene_Command=mkdir foo. Neither
command seems to have any effect when rendering. They work fine when run via the
Windows command prompt.

This is the entirety of my current INI file (life-Copy.ini):

Pre_Scene_Command=mkdir foo

life-Copy.pov is completely empty.

When rendering, no foo folder appears beside my INI file.

I am using "POV-Ray(tm) for Windows - Version 3.7.0.msvc10.win64" on Windows 7.

Is this a bug, or am I missing something?

Your help is appreciated.
