How to call any application (.exe) from menu [message #567450] Mon, 01 October 2012 06:42 Go to next message

I called an application from Oracle forms using:
Client_Host('cmd /c START "" "\\localPath\myApplication.exe"');
This works fine on local as well as server.

But when I use the same command to call the application directly from the MENU ITEM, it gives error alert:
"WebUtil Error: oracle.forms.webutil.host.Host bean not found. WEBUTIL_HOST.Execute will not work."

I even tried using DDE.App_Begin(). This gives error: ORA-106561.

How can I call any application (.exe) directly from the menu item on the server?

Sorry, I don't know the answer (and it seems that nobody who saw your question knows it either). Perhaps you should ask for help elsewhere (I'd suggest Forms forum on Oracle Technology Network Forums).

Hmmm, somehow I missed this question. This may not help much because I "think" this is what you did. I do not know what you mean by "call the application directly from the MENU ITEM." You didn't explain yourself clearly.

I run o/s commands from my custom menu items. I do not know if this is a correct way to do it, but what I do is make the menu item code
EXECUTE_TRIGGER('{some trigger name}');

and the code for {some trigger name} is a trigger at the form level of the form.
