ShellExecute to pass parameters

ShellExecute to pass parameters

ShellExecute to pass parameters

(OP)
I use this to pass parameters to another exe file
ShellExecute(Application.Handle,'open',pwidechar(mFilename),pwidechar(mParams),nil,SW_SHOWNORMAL); 

That causes windows to open up a security message 'Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device?' Which is fine, the problem is the security message is hidden and you have to click on it in the taskbar first.

Anyway to have that windows security message to pop up focused same way it does when you double-click on the file manually?

RE: ShellExecute to pass parameters

(OP)
I have this working you can close.

I switched to using ShellExecuteEx instead of ShellExecute, problem solved.
