result if a process fails to start

Post by digitaldoom »

I am trying to use NewProcess and my executable is failing to launch. How can I check to see what went wrong?

The old way I would use something like:

H := WinExec(PChar(t+#32+szfile), lpici.nShow);
if H < 32 then
MessageBox(lpici.hWnd, pchar(syserrormessage(h)), 'Error',
MB_ICONERROR or MB_OK);

How does your "NewProcess" code look like? You can ask the return interface instance about "LastErrorStr".
