I can use ShellExecute to run programs such as NotePad and calculator from within my Delphi4.0 application.

However when I try to run other external programs such as a perl batch file to upload files to a server, then the operation fails with the external propgram's window opening and closing quickly. Is this due to a windows (XP) setting, or some other problem?

Thanks, Peter
