Hi.
I have many problem to run a .bat (with a 'start cmd /c myapplication.exe' ) from a service. I have try ShellExecute but i have myapplication.exe running in background and never appears. My appilcation.exe is an APPTYPE CONSOLE.

I have try:
ShellExecute(0, 'open', 'c:\mydir\my.bat', nil, nil, SW_SHOWNORMAL) ;
or similar but this don't work!

I know that is difficult to execute a visual application from a service.
Can someone help me?

Windows 10
RAD Studio 10.2

Thanks in advice.
