Installing an executable
You can associate an executable file with an
object by dropping the executable's icon on the
Object Builder window or by selecting Executable
from the Install menu and selecting the
executable file from the file selection box.
When you drop an executable icon on the Object Builder window,
you are prompted to specify whether or not the executable is a graphical
application. A graphical application is one that is
designed to run in a graphical environment, such as the Desktop.
A non-graphical application can be run outside the graphical
environment, or from a terminal emulation window
(such as scoterm).
If you select Yes, the Object Builder generates
default scripts for both double-click and drag-and-drop actions.
If you select No, you are prompted to specify whether or
not you want the user to press any key to continue after
the executable has run. If the executable displays any
information that needs to be left in an open window for the
user to read, you should require a keystroke to continue.
The application will run in a shell window.
