Hybrid View

    i need to open an .exe file, and i was wondering if there is a way to open it without using a browser.
    or close the window after it opens.

    thanks.

    Sounds like you are trying to either use a Projector file, or a virus. I think that the only way you could open it, is to put something in the computers startup, that would in turn run the exe, or to double click it. I dont see a need to do the prior though.

    no, i'm not trying to open a virus. i am a graphic designer making a cd-rom for a company. they have tons of info in .pdf format and i need to make a button on the bottom that loads the install program for acrobat reader. it will open directly from the cd.

    Its all Good...

    Just when someone posts like that... in a vague manner.. it makes one think. You say that the company has tons of Info in PDF format. Now, is this CD for them or for clients of theres. I would think that all you would have to do is use an fscommand to open the exe, but I am not very familiar with loading or running external files. Sorry! I really wanted to clarify what I stated earlier. Next time, just be a little more descriptive if possible
