RUN! v0.75

March 30, 2008 by Rich Walsh

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service ++

From: Rich Walsh

RUN! v0.75 is now available. Download it from:

v0.75 fixes a hang some users experienced with v0.70 when using its new
"keep-alive" ('K') option.

RUN! can eliminate scripts and config.sys entries needed to start many
programs - particularly those started as 'helper-apps' by other programs.
It sets the current drive, directory, and BeginLibPath to the directory
containing the .exe, sets any options you've chosen, starts the program,
then terminates.

For example, to start Firefox from ProNews/2 without a script:
- copy run!.exe to Firefox's directory
- rename it firefox!.exe
- update ProNews/2 to start (e.g.) D:NetAppsFirefoxfirefox!.exe

Options such as turning on LibpathStrict or using your 2nd codepage can be
specified by embedding the appropriate character in the exe's name, e.g.

For a concise listing of all its options, run the unrenamed Run!.exe.

New in v0.70/v0.75
- Keep Run! in memory: option 'K' keeps Run! from terminating
until the program it started ends. The WPS icon used to start
the app will show that it's in use and will surface the app when
you click on it. Note: Run! uses about 300k while it's running.

- Set Priority: option 'Z' lets you set the priority of the
app you're starting. Use 'Z' by itself to set it to 400;
use 'Zcdd' to specify the priority (where c= 1-4 dd= 00-31)
