    Still can't launch an external executable through NativeProcess

    giorgov

      I have been waiting for so long for this feature - and still didn't manage to use it. I have this simple task to do: Open notepad (under windows) through Adobe AIR. Here's my code

       

         function init(){
           var process;
           var nativeProcessStartupInfo = new air.NativeProcessStartupInfo();
           var file = new air.File("C:\windows\System32\notepad.exe");

                    nativeProcessStartupInfo.executable = file;
          
           process = new air.NativeProcess();
                    process.start(nativeProcessStartupInfo);

          }

       

       

      When I execute this (onload) I get this error:

       

      NativeProcessStartupInfo.executable does not specify a valid executable file

       

      any help?

       

      thanks,

      George
