open process and paths...

Hi all,

Just wanted to share some hard-earned information (you all know what that
means;-) about the 'open process' command in XP. It turns out you can set
the default folder to a process file, then 'open process' the file. This
means you don't have to 'cd' to the directory of the process in a batch file
before launching it. But, if you happen to have the same file in the
standalone folder (or REV folder if you're authoring), it will instead
launch *that* file as a process.

So, IOW, the path structure for opening a process (as far as I can tell) is:

1) looks first in the standalone (or RR folder if authoring)
2) looks second in the defaultFolder
