I had been having a similar problem, but it was regarding running a VBS file. The file had just one line in it. It worked repeatedly just fine, if triggered (double-click) as a .VBS file from Windows Explorer or xplorer² and if triggered via a shortcut from either of those. However, it wouldn't
run at all from LBC or FARR - kept giving this error in both cases:
So, I did as you suggested above, re LBC:
...Can n you try this: Go to the topmost "Options" tab and change the setting you have for "Use file launch helper" -- see if that makes a difference?
That setting was empty (not ticked), so I ticked it, and now the script works just fine when triggered in LBC. I realise (from the Options
tip in LBC) that changing that option might enable or disable effective triggering of other files via LBC (depending on other factors), so I shall see what transpires, but at least I now know how to enable the .VBS file to be triggered via LBC,
That setting in LBC seems to be not
sticky, unless the user Exits
LBC nicely and then restarts it.
Now all I need to figure out is how to enable the trigger via FARR ...
