I just tried out MYOB (a popular financial program used widely in
Australia). The autorun program on the CD attempts to start programs
using WinExec as WinExec("whatnews\\whatnews.exe")
Unfortunately the FILE_contains_pathW function belueves that is a full
path which causes (in files/directory.c):
ret = DOSFS_GetFullName( name, TRUE, full_name );
to fail and return an error to WinExec and subsequently not do anything.
The below patch fixes this problem (for me) and lets me install a number
of ancillory programs. Unfortunately MYOB install uses InstallShield6 as
its installer, so I've had no success with the actual program.
Is there a better way to do this patch?
