Bonjour Peter,

No, it does not work without ".app", either with the final slash or  
without it.

  launch "/Applications/Microsoft Office 2008/Microsoft Word/" -- does  
not work
  launch "/Applications/Microsoft Office 2008/Microsoft Word" -- does  
not work

while it works as soon as one adds the ".app", with or without a final  
slash:

  launch "/Applications/Microsoft Office 2008/Microsoft Word.app" --  
works
  launch "/Applications/Microsoft Office 2008/Microsoft Word.app/" --  
works

Thank you much for your reply and suggestion

Best regards from Grenoble

André
