this is my first post to this list in quite a while. Please forgive 
me if this has been asked before. I've been on the IMPROVE list for 
quite a while, but this question is off topic for that list.

I'm in the process of upgrading my old HC stacks with Rev.

I'm having difficulty with the 'Launch' command, using Mac OS 10.2.6

My requirement is to repeatedly open an .html file (locally or 
online) after creation using my designated browser.

This was always a snap in Hypercard, but seems quite elusive in this 
case. I'd like to be able to do this from within Rev and not depend 
on the shell or applescript if possible.

So far the errors have been 'process already started' or 'file not found'.

I know it can be done - the RevNet stack does it perfectly....but the 
code is locked...
