I am currently writing and testing a bunch of different commands for several command line compressors that I use. The "dlgchoose" DOpus command is the best thing since sliced bread!!. I am having a problem though, in that I want to keep the console window open after command completion to examine how the files are sent to the archiver and verify the switches. I have tried "pause" as well as several VB commands to keep the console open, but no luck. It closes immediately after execution, with errors about pause and the VB commands. I looked through help file and could not find specific command.
