Does anyone know how 2 check if a program exists? i basically have this line of code:

; Run Sol

Run(@systemdir & "\sol.exe")

some users do not have sol.exe, it may have been deleted...how can i check that the file exists before running it? If i leave it like this...it will give an error in the program midway just before it is supposed to run the program.

Basically i want it to check if the program is there... and if it isnt... the user gets a message sayin program wasnt found. Or...

You could have the pc search for the file and then run it...

either ways would be fine....i guess for the search idea..it wud need a message if it wusnt found..

Please help.

If FileExists(@systemdir & "\sol.exe") then
   Run(@systemdir & "\sol.exe")
Else
   msgbox(0,"Error", "File not there.....")
EndIF

this was a part of the application i was creating, but...after it does that...it will not continue with the rest of the program... what do i write to let it continue and not just end the application?
