Automatic launch of Adobe on Win NT 4.0 SP6

Post by ken66 » Mon Jul 25, 2005 5:38 pm

I have set up PXC_WriteDocumentExA() with the flag WEF_RunApp set and the app name set to NULL. On all windows operating systems except Win NT 4.0 SP6, Adobe Reader is launched with the PDF displayed. If I use explorer and double click on the PDF file Adobe reader is launched. Have you experienced this?

Yes with NT we have - there seems to be no rhyme or reason to it all and it has been reported before - but we have never been able to replicate here.

I regret to say it seeems to be an issue with some installs of NT - but not others and we really have spent many, many hours attempting to replicate and fix - all to no avail.

I am afraid there is no quick and simple fix - on this one we have no smart answers - and no ideas :( - at this time it has us beat !
If posting files to this forum - you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded - thank you.
