I know. I didn't find it there eighter. But in Visual Basic, there is a very similar API command called ShellExecute. That does virtually the same and works the same.
I found some more information about this function here
, and it states that you can use the "open" action for documents, files and executables.
Please post your code here, or at least the error you get, and where. Do you get the error when compiling the script, or when you run the script, or doesn't the exe start at all, without any messages?
