Spawning program does not complete correctly
Posted on 1998-11-09
I've written an DOS application in MSVC 1.52.
It executes PKZIP and PKUNZIP a number of times. But one call always appears to hang. I've executed the command directly from the command line rather than from my application and it works correctly. I'm using _spawnl( _P_WAIT, ...) and checking for any error returned from the call.
Could it be a memory allocation problem? complier/linker setting? or does anyone have any idea how to solve this problem.
Thanks in advance,
