[REBOL] can't call notepad

From: rcm:formix:au at: 14-May-2008 11:15

Hello list, 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? Regards, Rosemary REBOL [] main: layout [ origin 100x100 space 5x5 button "Text 1" [call reduce ["notepad.exe" rejoin [c:\rebol\fred.txt]]] button "Text 2" [call reduce ["notepad.exe" c:\rebol\fred.txt]] button "Text 3" [call "notepad.exe c:\rebol\fred.txt"] ;button "Text 4" [call reduce ["notepad.exe" rejoin ["fred.txt"]]] button "FTP 1" [call "c:\program files\WS_FTP\WS_FTP95.exe"] button "FTP 2" [call "c:\program files\WS_FTP\WS_FTP95.exe"] ] view center-face main -- message ends
