HotKey to MS-Dos Progs by jnicks
Posted: 12 Aug 02

The 9x HotKey only goes to Win32 apps.

If you need to hotkey to a command procedure or older app the following VB5 will let you, just, when you make the icon be sure to put the rest of the command as parameters.

Sub Main()
  If 0 = Shell(Command$, 1) Then MsgBox " Could not launch " + Command$
End Sub

Field Use:

We have a Bat file called Cleanit.bat that wipes out caches, cookies, and cetera.

We Ctrl-Alt-B to clean out the temps and cache files.  The cleanit is a list of DelTree's which wipes  out directories.
