Hi there,
i have to run/call a batch file from my program that will run another java program. Eg It is an installer that after installing the files must call the bat file to start the application. Is there a way to call the file?Any help would be great
Thanks
Will

Please do not cross post your questions to multiple forums. Most of the visitors here read in many of the forums and it is frustrating to see the same question repeated over and over. You have a better chance of getting a correct and timely answer if you post it to the most appropriate forum instead of using the shotgun approach and hoping you'll hit something.
Since you already have an answer in the intermediate forum I'm closing this thread here.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
