Unable to execute external program

2 posts in this topic

Hi.

Anyone knows about this issue?

My logon script calls, using runwait, my antivirus install/updade .exe.

All 95/98 workstations stop at line of this call,and report "Unable to execute external program" indicating "invalid directory".

All 2000/xp workstations runs fine

:(

I am not sure with the given information. Could you give the script line?

It could be that the path of the win 95/98 workstations are not the same, or maybe you are using a line like:

run("cmd.exe /c c:\myantivirus.exe")

in which case, there is no cmd.exe on windows 95/98 it is command.com

You could also include the path in your run statement.
