I am using Win_API_Shell function to call my pfd file,the function is working fine when i run it from my pc(windows XP)but from the server(windows 2000) it is not giving any output but it is not displaying any error.My question is "is Win_API_Shell compatible with windows 2000" please help in that?
the code is:
Win_API_Shell.StartFile('c:\hrms9i\share_it\17.pdf', WIN_API.SW_SHOWnormal, TRUE);
Thank you,Hadia

when running the below command through forms runtime on the client machine, adobe reader startes just fine and the PDF file is displayed, but when the fmx file is copied to the oracle application server host machine and i try to run from the application menu, nothing happens, appreciate your help
the only difference i see between the client machine and the host machien is the OS. client is running WinXP SP2 and the host machine is running Win2k SP4, i dunno if this is relevant to the problem.

AppID := DDE.App_Begin('C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 6.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe C:\S\'||:seq_no||'.pdf',DDE.APP_MODE_NORMAL);

Rgds,
Hadia

Searching 'app_begin pdf' returns http://www.orafaq.com/forum/mv/msg/100406/312438/67467/#msg_312438

Try this other approach.
