Start Menu "Run" dialog with registered file type

Recommended Posts

How do I use the Windows Start Menu Run without the dialog...

the advantage is that, it would execute other than exe files like doc, xls...therefore would able to focus/activate in the MS office in Single Document Interface as it would be impossible in AutoIT bulit-in command

Try

#include <Process.au3>
_RunDos("start Http://www.autoitscript.com")

Straight from the help file.

#include <Process.au3>
_RunDos("start Http://www.autoitscript.com")

when execute the same excel file more than once in MS office 2003...I got an error that the file can only be open once...

my wish is that, i wanted to run as many time using existing Excel file without an error prompt

like C:\book1.xls

Excel will have to open the file in Read-Only mode or you have to make the SpreadSheet Shared....

To open files in Readonly mode you need to open it with "Excel /r sheetname.xls"
