Whenever I run a certain .exe in my CGI script, it opens the process but does not bring up the application. I am forced to close it out through task manager. Both exec & system have the same result. I created an autoit script to run the .exe and called it, but it does the same thing. Running notepad & wordpad in the same fashion produce the same results. The cgi script executes completely in the browser.
system ('start /b C:\xampp\htdocs\run_example.exe');
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
