Problem with ShellExecute and BSPlayer: parameter ignored

3 posts in this topic

In my simple test script I'm using ShellExecute to open an avi file in BSPlayer (the file's default player).

ShellExecute("testvideo.avi","-hide")

When I run the script the video "testvideo.avi" does indeed open in BSPlayer, but the BSPlayer GUI is visible.

"-hide" is a command line option that is supposed to hide the BSPlayer GUI, leaving just the video visible.

Why not use Run, or ShellExecute the BSP player program with the filename and the hide command as the parameters? What is the default action that happens when you double click an avi file?


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Thank you for replying, BrewManNH. Your suggestion prompted me to try Run one more time and I got it to work.

$pathV = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Webteh\BSplayerPro\bsplayer.exe" & " video.avi -hide"
Run($pathV)
