Hello I'm running as/400 clients in windows xp environment and novell clients. We run pc commands from os/400 by using the strpco+strpccmd 'xxxx.exe'. we run batch files commands etc. When we want to launch document with its application we use strpco+strpccmd 'start abc.doc' or 'start def.xls' which opens the application with its document. For some reason, on some machines, the start wont work from the strpccmd command. exe,com and bat work fine. the start command also works fine from the windows start/run option. any idea anyone?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

What is “start” ? .exe ? .com ? .bat ? an installable product ? is it registered the same way on each machine ?

First, look at the PATH when running from start/run and when from pccmd for checking that in the 2 cases START is seen correctly.

Second look at duplicates : a start.exe and a start.bat in the same folder, or some start.? in different folder

Good luck !

    start is a WINDOWS command by which you can start a windows program from its associated document, i.e. if yo write "start c:tempaaa.jpg" it starts the default jpg viewer with the aaa.jpg file.

    Check the XP clients that do not work and you will probably find a difference in the permissions allowed the account that is running the as/400 client. Nearly always if it works on some and not others then it is 'permissions'. It can be as simple as 'Did the 'system' account start the session, or did the 'user' start the session. Good luck,
