Customers keep asking us how to set things up when they have two versions of an application, each in a different VSP, that both have to be installed to the same location. This article discusses the problem and outlines a solution using a simple program created with WiseScript that we call "runexe.exe".

All runexe.exe does is take the program you specify and launch it. For example:

runexe C:\Program Files\AppX\main.exe

If you are interested, or want to fiddle with it, the script looks like this:

item: Set Variable
  Variable=CMDLINE2
  Value=%CMDLINE%
end
item: Execute Program
  Pathname=%CMDLINE2%
end

The download also includes a sample shortcut file.

I had a little trouble passing the SafeMode switch when running runexe with Firefox. I took your code and added a swith (/GS: ) so that any switches could be executed as arguments. Didn't know if anyone else had this trouble.

So I now have a SafeMode shortcuts point like this: runexe.exe "firefox.exe" /GS: -safe-mode
-------
item: Set Variable
Variable=CMDLINE2
Value=%CMDLINE%
end
item: Parse String
Source=%CMDLINE2%
Pattern=/GS:
Variable1=CMDEXE
Variable2=CMDVAR
Flags=00000001
end
item: Execute Program
Pathname=%CMDEXE%
Command Line=%CMDVAR%
end
