- Subject: cron as service problem with OLE application
I have this odd problem with the latest cron. cron_diagnose seems to
think everything is fine. I followed the instruction for reinstalling
cron as a service. The service is set to interact with desktop.
I want to run a perl (non-cygwin) script that starts a gui application
and manipulates it via an OLE interface. The application is for
downloading financial data (CSI UA).
When cron is running as a service, the application starts, the GUI
comes up, but it does not start the update (as requested via OLE).
If I start cron from a shell. The application works as expected.
Thanks a lot.
