OK, I am now completely confused.
I am building an OSX and WIN standalone and need to include a button
with a link that launches an .exe file on XP and 2000 BUT launches the
same .exe in VirtualPC if present in OSX.
I have tried a bunch of things and can't get it figured out. Please
help a desperate Revie.
Here is what I tried so far:
--get shell ("OPEN=ShellExe.exe ClickMe.bat") this was code I found
in the AUTORUN.INF from the PC CD, also is ClickMe.bat and ShellExe.exe
then there is the actual installers that I need which are - PCSB101.exe
if the environment is "Win32" then -- we are in XP or 2000
get shell ("start ShellExe.exe") -- can't figure out how to open
ClickMe.bat in the ShellExe.exe
else -- we are in OSX
--launch "/media/Demos/demos/PCPF109.exe" -- in OSX no luck
--get shell ("/media/Demos/demos/PCPF109.exe") -- in OSX no Luck
--get shell ("start /Applications/Microsoft Office X/Microsoft
PowerPoint") -- now I am confused
Thank you all I really need the help
