Hi all,

My target platform is Windows and I'd like to shell to an external executable, but can't find any type of shell command. How can this be accomplished?

Thanks

I can answer this one because the command was added for me when I worked on a small TGC project last year

RunApp

Runs an external executable that is independent of this app. It will return an ID that you can use to check if the app is still running or in extreme cases to terminate the app. If this fails it will return 0. Currently only works on Windows.

integer RunApp( szFilename, szParameters )
