Re: Win32API, CreateProcess and environment


#1

From: Daniel B. removed_email_address@domain.invalid
seems
to work, except that if I attempt to pass an environment
string, it causes
the app to die instantly. What am I doing wrong?

The ‘notepad’ process requires ‘SystemRoot’ environment
variable.

D’oh!

CreateProcess = Win32API.new(‘kernel32’,‘CreateProcess’, params, ‘I’)
startinfo = [0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0]

p create() # ok
p create(‘environment’=>“PATH=C:\;LIB=C:\lib”)

Park H.

Works great, thanks.
