Is there any (current / usable) documentation available about the external scripting option? If so, can somebody please point me in the right direction?


Or maybe someone can help me out with a problem to start a program with an external execution script.


When I place an external_exe.exe in the Retrospect install directory C:\Program Files\Retrospect\Retrospect 7.7 the exe will run. But when I enable the option in the script “use alternate path for external executable” and enter the path "C:\Scripts\Shutdown" the executable will not run. I tried different syntaxes for the path with \ at the, with/without “ and ‘ at the beginning and end of the path.


The log file always shows:

- 18-8-2011 12:09:02: Execution of external executable "external_exe.exe"

External execution of "external_exe.exe" completed successfully


So it looks to me that there is a problem with the alternate path.


Can someone help me to get it to work with multiple directories, so I can create multiple scripts to run multiple programs.
