in reply to Cannot run a .exe file from another .exe file

Hi damo666,

Here is a small test case that I build to test your problem. I compiled both .pl files with perl2exe as I don't use par. I do not experience any problems with the code below. Basically exe1.exe calls exe2.exe 10 times and then exits.

#! /usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; print "Inside exe1 about to run exe2 (10 times)\n"; my $count = 0; while ($count < 10) { system("exe2.exe"); $count++; } print "Finished running exe2\n";

#! /usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; print "Inside exe2.exe\n";

Hope this helps.

Of all the things I've lost in my life, its my mind I miss the most.
