      The CGI code dynamically passes the arguments to a .exe file.



      I need the .exe file to open as a separate application and not on the browser itself



      For example:

      system("vdiff32. exe $file1 $file2");



      The error msg in error.log (Apache)

      [error] [client ] 'vdiff32.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command,\r

      [error] [client ] operable program or batch file.\r



      Requesting your kind help !

      What is your code?



      What is the error message? (check Apache's error log too)



      What does the Win32 application do?



      What is the name of the application?



      Are you trying to get information from the application? What information?



      I hope you know that the application will not appear in the browser



      window.
