Dear all,

I keep running into issues where my application developed in AIR call an external program.  The external program is our own application as well which is a custom-made browser.  The issue my programming partner and I have is the following:

1.  call out to a default browser:  after tricking and modifying registry, our custom-made browser can be recognized as default browser.  The issue that we have some part of the custom-made browser does not work!

2.  using fscommand:  our custom-made program is opening successfully however the above problem remains, e.g. some part does not work.

3.  the custom-made program itself runs perfectly if called out from windows directly.

Just outta curiousity, would anyone tell me why that issue happens?  As opposed to call notepad.exe, notepad is opening fine.  Opening firefox etc also open fine. without issue.  I may need some enlightenment on this if anyone knows anything or the differences between using defaultbrowser or fscommand.

Thank you for reading.

Regards,

Iman

Give NativeProcess a try, you have much better control over the started process. Maybe the browser is not working because the working directory is not set properly, missing a DLL, maybe it's something else, hard to tell.
