    how to launch external app?

    Working on an Flex3/AIR project and curious how I go about launching an external local application (like you could via fscommand("exec", appName) in flash.

    Thanks!

    Doesn't appear to be any way (presently?) but you can at least open a URL in the default browser application (luckily this was all I needed it to do though I can certainly envision future situtations where inability to launch EXE/APP/BAT will be an issue...

    here's how to launch in external default web browser
    var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest("someSite.html");
    navigateToURL(request);
