I've been looking for a way to do this as well.  Unfortunately, c(os)
can't distinguish between XP and Vista.


"
    c(os) returns a string containing "Windows", "Unix", or "MacOSX",
depending on the operating system that you are using.  The list of
alternatives,
        although complete as of the date of this writing, may not be complete.
"

The best way may be to use a capture-if, along the lines of:



capture cd "C:\documents and settings\adrian\my documents\research\"
if _rc!=0 {
            cd "[windows vista research path]"
}
