Hi All!


I wanted to know whether we can trigger an exe from a zxp installer. I want that the zxp should install the exe (which is no problem), and then trigger it (which is the problem). Is it even possible? If so, how?

    As far as I know that is not possible (perhaps the C++ developers should have a solution). Adobe installers usually to not allow external manipulation during the process.


    But once the application is installed and running you should be able to run NativeProcess. Through that API you could run it using command line. Notice that executable files has many security issues.


    I hope it helps !
