Problem launching external application
Posted on 2008-06-11
Im trying to get my program to launch srdiag.exe from the C:\WINDOWS\system32\Restore folder on my pc. Its a utility used by system restore to generate log files and place them in a cab file. The problem is when i try to launch it from my program it doesnt work quite right. The srdiag.exe command window launches and closes after several seconds as it should but no files are created. There are no errors reported by vb or srdiag.
Im using VB Express 2008 and ive already tried the usual shell and process.start commands with the same result.
Im on Win XP Pro.
