Is there a way to opena file or folder without the Sys Exec? Just wondering, because that doesnt work on some computers at school, and I wantedc to make a program for my friend (Evil school network doesnt even give you paint or notepad!)

do u mean a progame that opens flooders (ie that makes the windows expore thing come up) or do u whont to have turing show a list of files in a dir?

if u are trying to open progames that your netwrok dose not alow u to u can not do this in turing (if your sys admin is doing his job)

Ok, i mean, on the "old" computers, (ones without XP), you can access files using

if not Sys.Exec ("c:") then
end if

that makes C: pop up in explorere window. Thats what i want to do, in another way if possible Smile

works on xp pro for me, i think it could be that he has a onlder verson of turing where sys.exec did not try to oppen the application.

off the top of my head i cant think of a way to do it with out sys.exec. also if this is just for geting to c: driver on a networked comp, there are many easyer ways to do this then using turing. shuch as the run line, ms word (by trying to open a file then puting in CSmile, making a short cut there on a spot where u can save/edit files, editing a short cut to go there, using IE, making C: a favorite in IE, and the list goses on....

Ahh, but all those things, run line, IE, etc are blocked, the Turing way is the only way! (But why does it work on the ones with 98/me and not the ones with XP?)
