MS Access Shell use to call external application with audio

P: n/a
mld
I need to run an application from MS-Access and if I try to call it
using Shell, it works but it does not recognize the associated wav
files. If I run the same application from my command line using the
same string it runs fine. Any idea why the wav files are not
recognized when using shell?
