Desktop Folder Action - Convert Safari .webloc to PC .url files

I almost didn't respond because this website forced me to register in order to leave a reply, but I did, and then had to navigate back to this page 3 times.

Anyway, the problem is insufficient quoting on the grep line, just use the version from the original post the backslashes should all be in pairs (awwww)

set cmd to devToolsPath & "DeRez -e -only 'url ' " & weblocPath &
" | grep '\\/\\* .* \\*\\/' | sed 's/^.*\\/\\* //;s/ \\*\\/$//' | tr -d '\\n'"
