I have an InnoSetup script that is failing when I try to compile it...

The error is: "Unknown Identified 'InstExec'" -- on the line below that starts "bres := InstExec".

This is the part of the code failing:

procedure CurPageChanged(CurPage: Integer);
var
ResultCode :Integer;
err:String;
bres:Boolean;
begin
  if ((CurPage = wpInfoAfter) and (EditorOpened = False)) then begin
       EditorOpened := True;
       bres := InstExec( 'notepad.exe' , GetJRELibSecurityDir('')+'\java.security',GetJRELibSecurityDir(''),True, False, SW_SHOWNORMAL, ResultCode);
       if (ResultCode <> 0) then begin
          err :=  SysErrorMessage(ResultCode);
          MsgBox(err, mbError, mb_Ok);
       end;

  end;
end;
procedure CurStepChanged(CurStep: Integer);
begin
 // if CurStep = csFinished then
 //   FinishedInstall := True;
end;


I'm not sure what's up, isn't that sort of like Inno's equivalent of a syntax error? This script compiled for others so I am not sure how my setup differs.

I'm on InnoSetup Compiler 5.0.8 (ISPP 5.0.6.0)

thank you for any help

best
Eric
