Passing data between programs

05-17-2002, 07:20 PM
I am working on passing data from a java script on one side of a thin client from a VB 6.0 app.

I can do it by dropping text in an .ini file, but I am wondering if there isn't a better way.

Eh what?

Sorry, could you explain that again? :)

What I am having trouble doing is executing another app through a thin client. It seems that, no matter what path I use, it comes up invalid.

Using the shell statement, I have tried


It returns an elongated error message

Using shellexecute I have tried

shellexecute me.hWnd, "Open","\\server\apps\program.exe", "", "", 0

It just says, "Cannot find the file"

These commands work on the server and the network, but not through the thin client

Any ideas?

You shouldn't be able to do this using Javascript in a browser. But
somehow, I don't think that is what you mean. Where and in
what context are you trying to use Shell or ShellExecute.
