I'm trying to run a couple of MS Windows tasks (programs) from VAST buttons
I set up the appropriate widget(s), connect my buttons , but find that only ONE of the calls will actually function. Teh first one I setup. The second setup simply 'flashes;' the DOS window and exits, without doing the requested job. Its so fast that I cant actually see what its showing.
I there a limit to the number of 'external call' widgets you can use ?

Put the programs in a '.bat' file, one batch file per program and add a 'pause' to the end of the batch file. The 'pause' will prevent the dos window from closing until you hit a key and you can read any messages or errors displayed.
