• Problems using Wildfire on non-Windows platform

    By Andrew Welch 1 decade ago

    Since Widlfire is written in Java it will mostly work on all platforms. However, I have noticed that there are a few cases where the configuration dialogs do not work on non-Windows platforms.

    When I look at the source code I see that you have lines of the form:

    Runtime.getRuntime().exec("cmd.exe/C start "+url.replaceAll("&", "\"&\""));

    This code will clearly only work on windows since cmd.exe is a windows specific executable. However, it would be easy to make this work on all platforms by using the org.eclipse.swt.program.Program object where the above line would become

    Program.launch(url.replaceAll("&", "\"&\""));

      Hi Brian,

      Thank you very much for the suggestion.

      I have just made the necessary changes, which will be available in the next release.

      I believe that should make it compatible with any java-enabled platform.

      Regards Andrew
