It is not in my PATH statement and it is not installed in the applications
section of the Windows registry. The result is that it does not run when I
run the ^!Replace command. Only the clip parser version in NoteTab acts on
You have shown me something that I had not previously though about. The
normal function of the clip parser is to run programs in windows if you
enter the program name after the command identifier (^!). An example is to
run the Windows calculator, you enter ^!Calc.exe into a clip and every time
you run the clip, the calculator will be launched. I never realized that a
command that had the same name as a NoteTab command would be launched
rather than using NoteTab's clip parser commands. Eric, do you have any
comments about this????
I am not totally sure what you could do but I would suggest relocating the
Replace.exe file to a different folder that is not in your PATH statement.
If you do not have a PATH statement set up in your Autoexec.bat file (the
newer versions of Windows does not require that you have a PATH statement
or anything else in the autoexec.bat file), you might try renaming the
Replace.exe file to something else. Example: Replace01.exr. This will
allow you to still use it by using the new name in DOS when you want to run
it and NoteTab will not activate it because it will not find it.
