It is an exe file so I simply double-click it from within windows explorer.
: : Hi
: : I can use ShellExecute to run programs such as NotePad and calculator from within my Delphi4.0 application.
: : However when I try to run other external programs such as a perl batch file to upload files to a server, then the operation fails with the external propgram's window opening and closing quickly. Is this due to a windows (XP) setting, or some other problem?
: : Thanks, Peter
: How do you run the perl batch file directly (not from your Delphi app) on your PC? Can you give an example that works, I mean the exact "command" and where/how you give it?
