Subject RE: Windows 7 and ant exec task

Zzz is a .bat file.  If I specify the full path of zzz, it executes

I'd rather not use the full path.  The path to the executable will be
different on the dev workstations and the build/ci server.

if you specify the full path of zzz, can you then execute it ?
