in reply to Call external Windows/win32 executable

You can use

$exitcode = system('path/to/your/file.exe arg1 arg2');

It will run the EXE, it will wait until it completes, AND you'll get the exit status...

    $exitcode = system('path/to/your/file.exe arg1 arg2'); $exitcode = $exitcode >> 8;

    see system for details.
