I'm trying to launch another JNLP file from within an application that was deployed via webstart.
I use the following Command:

Runtime.getRuntime().exec("myfile.jnlp");

and get the following error:
java.io.IOException: CreateProcess: c:\testing\launchNewWindow.jnlp error=193

Does anyone know why this is happening? I even tried using the absolute path to the file and I keep getting the same error. Is there anyway that I can find out what error 193 is?

hi Ronnie
jnlp file can be just executed from the prompt by typing the name as its not a program/executable.
we need "javaws" to run it.
i tried following from my computer,

it worked for me. here, draw.jnlp is the SUN's Draw application.
tho u'll have to resolve path issues etc to see if u can run "javaws" as just "javaws" to avoid system dependencies etc...
regards
