[Solved] How to Run ACDSee?

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello

I need to Launch ACDSee, and RightClicking ACDSee's Shortcut in the StartMenu, gives a very unusual type of Shortcut, that does not display the "Target:" Field in a normal way(meaning path to the executable),

and instead shows a disabled Field.

Anyone had experience with this?

Any ACDSee product which is from the last 5 years would be good.

Thank you

ShellExecute("ACDSee8Pro.exe", "", @ProgramFilesDir & "\ACD Systems\ACDSee\8.0.Pro")
Works for me.

Hey this is interesting.

All my attempts using Run(), did not succeed.

But now thanks to you, using ShellExecute(), it worked!

ShellExecute("C:\Program Files\ACD Systems\ACDSee\11.0\ACDSee11.exe")

First of all, thank you!!! :)

Second, I now ask myself,

Why Run() couldn't run it, and ShellExecute() could?

Here are my attempts with Run(), all did not work:

Run("C:\Program Files\ACD Systems\ACDSee\11.0\ACDSee11.exe")
Run("C:\Program Files\ACD Systems\ACDSee\11.0\ACDSee11.exe","""C:\Program Files\ACD Systems\ACDSee\11.0\""")

Anyone has an idea why ShellExecute() is better than Run() here?

(could've I succeeded somehow running it with Run()?)

I don't believe Run() would work, the versions of Acdsee we use are windows shell UI integrated apps. Which probably accounts for why the start menu shortcut properties don't look standard. Maybe someone more who knows more on this can comment.

thank you very much picaxe :)

If someone can add on the reason of why Run() not working(or how to make Run() work somehow), I would be curious to know.

thank you
