shell problems from vb4(32) to MS dos
Posted on 1998-09-02
I have a program in vb4 (32)( win 95) that needs some tweeking. I have a file (144000 bites) compressed in win 31 to be self extracting on a 3.5 disk in a 'A drive'. A call from the program (vb4 32 win 95) copies this file to a new directory on the 'C drive' ok so far.
now the trouble. In the program I shell to this newly created directory to unpack the compressed exe file. I use the code... shell("c:/done/fill.exe",1)... to see what is happening. The MS Dos window opens and I see the file unpacking. BUT WHEN I GO TO THE DIRECTORY... only the fill.exe is there. I shut OFF the puter and reboot and STILL there are NO FILES other than the fill.exe WHAT AM I DOING WRONG help help......please
