SYS_Execute not working on Win98
SYS_Execute works okay on NT but fails on Win98.
I am trying to run and executable which runs another application. eg.
I am doing this to start the secondexe in a separate thread. On windows NT its fine. on win98 it just hangs on sys_execute command for ever unless I close the seconfexe program, so SYS_Execute is working but looks like it is waiting for something.
Re: SYS_Execute not working on Win98
Are these background commands? Or do they start up a GUI? If they start up a GUI rather than just running a DOS process, you should use the Start method instead, that way you can manage the thread. SysExecute was designed to terminate when the process has ended. Is sounds to me like the process doesn't end in Win98.
