you forget the space after notepad ! Posted Image

Try Run ( "notepad.exe " & $sTextFile, @WindowsDir, @SW_MAXIMIZE )

;) thanks wakillon... so the cause of my 2 hrs frustration was due to a missing space :) now thats one thing i definitely need to remember.

for this error type i use a simple method :

$_Run = "notepad.exe" & $sTextFile
ConsoleWrite ( "$_Run : " & $_Run & @Crlf ) 
Run ( $_Run, @WindowsDir, @SW_MAXIMIZE )

With ConsoleWrite you'll see that space is missing ! Posted Image
