Hi Thanos, nope, your code always fires "Couldn't launch". PS: Windows opens an error message saying that it was not possibile to find the file. Interesting enough the name of the file is a word salad. There must have to do with the encoding, but I have no clue.

      Yes, I've seen it as many (really many) other posts connected to encodings and Perl.

    Hello again Anonymous Monk,

    Try to run the command manually from the command line:

    start "" /max "c:\сервис.pdf"

    Experiment until the command it self works. After that you should be able to add it and work out of the box.

    Let us know if you manage to make it work, so other can benefit in similar cases.

    Seeking for Perl wisdom...on the process of learning...not there...yet!

      From the command line I have no problem at all! There must be some encoding issue somewhere, the problem is I don't understand where...I'll keep on trying to find a solution.
