    Unable to start external process

    Hi guys,

    I'm written a NinjaScript indicator which successfully grabs the price corresponding to a mouse click on a chart and then enters menu items in the context menu allowing me to buy or sell with a click.

    The indicator is for historical discretionary trading only so intends to make use of NT's add execution manually functionality. I hope to call a hot key manager to basically automate all the tedious data entry using my indicator.

    However, I am stuck at the point of being able to call an external program. I'm using;

    Code:
    System.Diagnostics.Process.Start( "notepad.exe" );
    For some reason, nothing happens.
    The indicator itself works fine and I can open up a message box in the line following the above.
    There are no visible error messages, including in the log.
    If I run the above line as a simple standalone C# program, it works fine.

    Any pointers would be much appreciated.

    thanks

      Problem solved.

      My mistake. Stepped through the debugger and found the path wasn't being executed because I'd wired up the wrong menu items to the called methods.
