"Additional Task" Not Executing

Post by shacho » Sat May 03, 2008 5:14 pm

I have a scheduled event which is meant to execute a script that starts media player and feeds it a url. It has always worked in the past. I just installed i-sound on a new machine and it doesn't work anymore. The path is simple: "C:\Launch.vbs". I have tried with and without quotes. No matter what I try, thw script is not executed. If I paste the exact path into the Windows-Run Program dialog, it executes properly. Recording starts, but the script is not executed. What's the problem?

Why you use vbscript? You can start Media Player directly.

The script generates the URL, which is dynamic. That's beside the point though. The script isn't even being called.

1. Did you pass URL to this script or just call C\Launch.vbs?
2. Do you have a Windows Vista?

1 > The script handles everything, from generating the URL to instantiating the player, to starting the stream. i-Sound only needs to instruct the shell to execute the file path.

2 > Windows XP, but through VMWare on a Mac.

There is a chance that VMWare is blocking scripts called by applications for security reasons. VMWare does have some pretty aggressive security policies. Ever heard anything along these lines?
