i am trying to call notepad exe through flex.
but if i am using this in my desktop application. it is not working. it shows an error like. external interfaace is not available to this container.
is it only applicable to web application. or is there any way to call the exe from flex.
Pretty simply no you can't ... with what Flex/Air provides
But if your using an AIR Application you could call a Java Application via Merapi http://www.merapiproject.net/ that then starts Notepad .... I've never tried Merapi myself but thats the kind of thing it should be able to do.
if anybody is having idea on merapi to call notepad exe pleas give an idea to me.
