Hi I have a bat file that launch an emulator. It works fine with Runtime.getRuntime().exec(..) in an application. I tried the same thing in an Applet and I am getting IOException with createprocess error=0. Is it possible to run a bat file in an applet? If yes, please give me some guidelines. Thanks Vani
Vani, This will work only if the applet is signed... trying to execute programs on the clients machine is a big security risk so Java doesn't allow it. What if the batch file contained the command "format C:\" or something... HTH, -Nate
