Hello again. 

One more. 

What is the correct code to run a file
(in this case, self extracting .exe files) in LiveCode. 

Here are the
code I have written (with help) and it does not work: 

 if the platform
is "MacOS" then
 open file
"http://www.campstaffusa.com/newdb/uploadpic_swt_mac.exe"
 else
 open
file "http://www.campstaffusa.com/newdb/uploadpic_swt.exe"
 end if

 if
the platform is "MacOS" then
 open file
"http://www.campstaffusa.com/newdb/resume_swt_mac.exe"
 else
 open file
"http://www.campstaffusa.com/newdb/resume_swt.exe"
 end if

Please help.
It is VITAL that the program, whether online or used as a program, load
these files properly.

Thanks again.

Mike

wonder why those items don't obey. If you are going to change the
itemDelimiter you might try something like: put the itemDel into
old_delimiter set the itemDel to "/" -- gather some items set the
itemDel to old_delimiter Mike --- On Sun, 7/31/11, Pete wrote: From:

with empty in . That's assuming it's always the same string you want to
get rid of. Alternatively: set the itemdelimiter to "/" replace item 4
of with empty Pete Molly's Revenge On Sun, Jul 31, 2011 at 6:58 PM,
