    API problems

    Xposure Interactive Level 1
      I have a program with a shortcut next to it. The short cut works from out side the program but on some systems it doesn't work with this code: set OK = baOpenFile( the moviePath & "ToolBoxTalks.lnk" , "maximised" ).
      On most computers this works but on the odd one it doesn't. Its a mystery. It works on a machine without director installed so it is not that the Xtra is missing.

          When you set the result of your operation to the variable OK, that
          usually tells you what is going on. For testing purposes, change it to

          set OK = baOpenFile( the moviePath & "ToolBoxTalks.lnk" , "maximised" )
          alert string(ok)

          Now, when that code runs, it will send up an alert box with the error
          code. Consult the BuddyAPI documentation for baOpenFile for a list of
          what the error codes mean.
