Ah, I hadn’t thought that might be the real question, launch Omnis 7 with a specific lib from within Studio.

Hi Martin,

You can launch Omnis Studio from Omnis 7, and you can tell Omnis Studio to open a particular library, so you could, say do "start program normal omnis.exe library.lbs" in Omnis 7.  That's assuming that you want to get Studio to do something from within Omnis 7.  If you want, you may even be able to get some inter-application communication going via DDE or TCP/IP.

Regards,
Paul.

Hello Martin,

You can’t go back form v10 to earlier versions, eg v8 of Studio.  And you can’t go back to earlier versions of Studio, as they are Non unicode based.

And then you can’t also go back to Omnis 7 format from an Omnis Studio v4 or earlier as far as I know.

So plenty of road blocks.

You can however go from Omnis 7 to Studio v10, but plenty of hoops and stops along the way.

Is that what you really mean?

Hi ALL, How do I convert an OS10.2 library to an Executable file that can run from Omnis 7 library with the command "DoesFileExist(lPath) with return value lFlag"? Or can the library run as a .lbr file in Omnis 7?

Rgds, Martin.
