Subject Re: exec - Cannot run program 'start' CreateProcess error=2
Date Wed, 16 Dec 2009 13:09:03 GMT
Hi

The build.xml is given by the vendor of the app server, and is a complex
build file. I am OK to make changes, but only minor changes.

I tried adding attribute *vmlauncher="false"* to exec and it worked for me.

cheers
