Is it possible to make a call from a Solaris system to a Windows app? I am trying to setup a process in Oracle ERP which is on a Solaris server that will make a call at the end of the process to a windows app. The windows app will responds to a cmd line call but I hae no idea how to make a Soalris server call the windows server much less the app at teh cmd line.

    Hello.

    This is not so easy.

    In principle - if you do not have the source code of the Windows App - there are two possibilities:

    - Try to run the App under Wine. Wine is an application that can run (some) Windows Apps under Linux, Solaris, BSD etc.
    - Use a virtual machine or a second server that runs MS Windows and a telnet server. Call the App via telnet.

    Of course you do not have any chance to get the App running on a Sparc machine. (Maybe using a x86 processor emulation.)
