Calling a livecode executable -ui from LC server and get back a result.

It is only editbin.exe you need which might floating around online on its own somewhere...

Also I think the subsystem is specified in a byte in the header of a PE executable so could be twizzled with a script that modifies that byte...

Probably an easy exercise for anyone who likes poking around in binary formats (search for windows PE format online should give the appropriate specs).

And all that, just because some 3rd party insists on cookie authentication for a Webservice where I would need to get the Headers back from a post. *sigh*
