The ability to leave out .exe or .com actually originates with the
Windows API call "CreateProcess".

I don't believe that Ant does anything except pass through the
executable attribute straight through the JavaAPI to Windows.

How about calling the script iasdeploy.bat on all systems (Solaris
included)? <grin>

Otherwise, I don't have any suggestions.
