I have a problem with starting an exe application via pif shortcut from startup directory when Windows is starting.
The sandbox alert appears and also “16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem” dialog which tells me “Invalid program file name, please check your pif file. Coose ‘Close’ to terminate the application.” Option “Do not run this application inside the Sand box” doesn’t help.
The same situation happens when I try to start the program manually via PIF shortcut. When I try to run the program directly (without pif shortcut) everything is OK.
The only way how to workaround this problem is to use BAT file with command line similar to the
Without the start command the sandbox allert appears again the same way!!
I have noticed there are a few complains about this behaviour at the forum. Have you any solution already?
