Subject Re: Seaparate command window

With the hint from Bill Burton re: windows scripting host & Windows 2000, I
was able to build a quick script that does indeed launch a separate command

To avoid setting off any virus detectors that purge VBS attachments for
messages, I'm including the script as inline text. Obviuosly, you'll need to
cut between the "---" and save as "launch.vbs" somewhere in your path.

Dim WSHShell,argCount,exeStr

set WSHShell=WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
exeStr="cmd /c"

while argCount < wscript.arguments.count

 exeStr = exeStr + " " + wscript.arguments(argCount) 
 argCount = argCount + 1

then using it is as simple (relatively speaking) as following this example:

  <target name="startWLS">
    <exec dir="${install.dir}" executable="cmd"
          os="Windows 2000">
      <arg value="/c"/>
      <arg value="launch.vbs"/>
      <arg value="start"/>
      <arg value="startWebLogic.cmd"/>
