Run a console application from command dos

ACC
Hi,

Imagine I have a .msi file to install my application and that my
application can be executed by a graphical interface, or simply by DOS
shell.

My problem is that I want to run it from the command dos shell just by
doing "ABC.exe parameter parameter... " and not by doing
"full_path/ABC.exe parameter parameter...

Can anyone tell me how can I make this??
Thank you for your help,

ACC

You can set environment variable( Path) to ignoring the fullPath

Aboulfazl,

How can I do that? I know how to do it by hand... but I want to do it
automatically! I want to give my application to a client, and when he
installs it the enviorment variable should be set.

Thank you for your help,
ACC

Use either PInvoke as below or
Environment.Set EnvironmentVari able for .NET 2.0

[DllImport("kern el32.dll", SetLastError=tr ue)]
static extern bool SetEnvironmentV ariable(string lpName, string lpValue);

You can use Set Path Command to adding new path (path of your msi ) to
the default path of Windows.

hope this helps you
