I want to know if there's a way to launch another file extension besides .exe (right now I'd like .mdb). Is there another function besides ExecWait I can do this with??
Here's my current code:
BTW: I'm making my splash screens for files, this one's for our church database.
Name "Myname" OutFile "MyOutput.exe" Caption "Mycaption" Icon "Myicon.ico" CRCCheck On WindowIcon Off SilentInstall Silent AutoCloseWindow True RequestExecutionLevel user Section "Main" ;=== Show the splash screen while processing registry entries InitPluginsDir File /oname=$PLUGINSDIR\splash.jpg "MySplashScreen.jpg" newadvsplash::show /NOUNLOAD 4000 200 0 -1 /L $PLUGINSDIR\splash.jpg ExecWait "someprog.exe" newadvsplash::wait SectionEnd

[Thanks Ryan, I had just figured out how to do that, and then came back and it was changed! Thanks.]
It's shell run or something similar to that. The issue, of course, is that the given OS must have a file association for MDB (most of which won't as most PCs don't have access installed).
Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
I'm just making this for one comp, I won't put it on any without access...thing is, I'd like to be able to do this without having to make a separate file launcher exe. BTW, it needs to work on '98. Thanks
You can always use the thing that's the best and the worst in NSIS. Shell plugin.
The best - you can write everything in it.
The worst - it's often faster to rewrite your launcher to another language than to us e it.

I hope that that's what you want.

Actually, I found out about that yesterday, and it's just what I want, I just forgot to post about it. BTW, where is this 'NSIS User Manual'??
