does the shell open anything else other than an .exe file,
i want to open an msi file
is this possible.
Yes, it's possible, as long as the file has a "shell association". For example, on my XP the ".msi" file extension is assoicatedQuote:>> is this possible.
In fact, the "open" verb will be listed in the file's context menu as "Install".
You can use "ShellExecute" or "ShellExecuteEx" to invoke any shell verb on a file, or use NULL to invoke the default verb.
Try searching the MSDN library for "file assoications" or "shell verbs" or anything similar.
when closing the shell, i get a following message "Could
not open H:/.wind/shellHistory.dat to store shell history."
i am on win2k, tornado 1.01. i do have a c:\tornado\.wind\
directory. where does the "H:/" come from? do i not have
some variable set? i'd really like that shellHistory
feature thing to work.
also, i do have WIND_BASE=C:/Tornado
