Anyone can help me out with a shell command ?


Recommended Posts

Shell "C:\Program Files\Client\Client.exe" 

What do i need to add to this to make the .exe open up on top of windows instead of opening minimized?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

In Visual basic with AutoItX or in AutoIt ?

Do you want to set it topmost or not to open minimized ?

Umm not sure what you ment. But here is the solution:

Dim K As Double
K = Shell("C:\Program Files\cleint\Client.exe", vbNormalFocus)

It's odd with Vb6 because you can also just do something like this:

Shell "C:\Program Files\LocalServer\LocalServer.exe" which will open the exe. But for openin something in a certain way you have to use that function call.

Here is a new question though:

How do i get the system trey to auto-refresh itself?

if i use the Shell "taskkill /im LocalServer.exe" it leaves a ghost of the icon in the system tray.
