Thank you for the meticulous answer. However, I am a dilletant and
cannot see my way through all this.
We have this process:
answer file "select a program" with "/C:/Documents and
, and it is a function which shall permit novice computer users to
produce a few buttons inside their personal electronic diary
,permitting them to open the few other programs they will tend to use,
perhaps word, picasa, mail-program, calculator, checkers...etc
simplifying their everyday, and having their use of such programs
logged (timeindexed) into the diary.
The paradox is, that in windows, they can open the start menu, go to
programs, and see all programs there,
and we can move down the directories manually, and find all these links
in the Start Menu/Programs folder.
But Revolution cannot find them , just find a very few of them, by that
I Understand, that the line may have to be changed, in order to fit
windows 7, - but as long as it doesn't work even on Windows XP
that seems to be a secondary question.
Maybe many scriptlines have to be concocted, to produce an acceptable
result corresponding to what can be done so simply in Mac,
So,pragmatically: how would you script to solve the problem.
That a few programs may escape, is not a serious problem in this
