[REBOL] can't call notepad
From: rcm:formix:au at: 14-May-2008 11:15
The following works fine on my PC, but hasn't worked on a friend's PC ever
since she got a new machine; it's running XP as before.
When invoking notepad, I get a black (could be DOS box) flash briefly
after agreeing to the Rebol security check, then notepad launches with the
txt file. However, there's not even a black flash on her machine.
When calling the FTP programme, her machine plays the "connected" .wav
alert, but no WS-FTP screens are visible.
I've shown the variations I've tried to call the external programmes. Is
anyone able to shed some light on this problem?
