    I’m trying to get the File/URL in a task to load a specific JotNotes file and keep getting error messages that myTask is unable to launch…..

    I can get JotNotes to start easy enough with either “JotNotes3.exe” or browsing to exe in the folder.

    But when I try to use a specific file it doesn’t work. My command line is:
    “C:Program FilesKing StairsJot+ NotesJotPlus3.exe c:Downloadhome.jot”

    I’ve tried the %20 in spaces but that didn’t make any difference. I’ve also tried various placed for the quotes.

    I thought specific file loading was supported, but maybe not?

    Thanks,

    I found an old email that explained my problem and a work around.

    The work around is a batch file. Anyone know how to prevent a DOS box opening in WinXP when running a batch file?

    All you should need to specify is the file name – the Jot+ Notefile.
    When it is launched, Windows will figure out that it needs to launch Jot+ Notes with that notefile.
    The same is true for Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, HTML files, etc.

    What I’m trying to ultimately do is open a specific .jot file at a specific note id, launched from within myTasks. As I understand it, myTasks needs to call a batch file to do that since the File/URL command doesn’t accept note file ids or specific note files.

    It was suggested I use a batch file to do that and have myTasks call the batch file. While that works, in WinXP, a “DOS” box remains open after Jots+ starts. I was hoping there was some way to close that box automatically after Jots+ starts.

    Thanks,

    There will be an easier way to do this in the near future. That’s all I can say right now.
