    FTP Voyager Scheduler: Run External Program doesn't work

    dstark1248


      I'm trying to run and external program from within an action. The Program to Run: C:\Windows\notepad.exe

       

      From what I see in the Task Log, it appears everything worked.

       

      [13] Mon 09Sep13 12:49:49 - (Action: Open Notepad) - Running external program: C:\Windows\notepad.exe

      [13] Mon 09Sep13 12:49:49 - (Action: Open Notepad) - Action successfully completed.

      [12] Mon 09Sep13 12:49:49 - (Task: Open Notepad) - Execution successfully completed.

      [05] Mon 09Sep13 12:49:53 - QUIT

       

      Except nothing happened.

       

      I am using Windows 7, 64-bit.

       

      BTW, if I put in an invalid path (C:\Windowsx\notepad.exe), the Task Log reports

       

      [12] Mon 09Sep13 13:20:50 - (Task: Open Notepad) - Execution failed (Last Error Message: (0x2) The system cannot find the file specified.).

       

      So it appears finding notepad.exe isn't the issue.
