Unable to run SoundRecorder using "OpenFile" on Wi

Postby reneuend » Sat Nov 12, 2011 4:20 pm

I'm trying to update my old game, "Throwman", so it will work with Windows 7. It was originally built for XP and Vista.

One of the options that is in the game is recording sounds and to make it easier I was launching soundrecorder from the AM game by using the Action.OpenFile commmand.

When I try Action.OpenFile on Win7, nothing happens. I can only guess that this is some kind of security issue, but thought I'd throw this out here just in case someone had an idea on how to fix this.

[UPDATE]: I tried creating a shortcut to soundrecorder from the desktop and that didnt work either. However, i was able to launch Excel using Action.OpenFile, so it really looks like the System folder has extra protection.
