try to call wfs.exe (MS fax and scan) with webutil_host !!

I would call from Forms the MS scan and fax application “wfs.exe”.
This is found under windows\system32.

WEBUTIL_HOST.NONBLOCKING ('cmd /c C:\windows\system32\wfs.exe');

Unfortunately, nothing happens. No error message and no cmd-process remains open in the taskmanager.
with other applications it works. For example:

WEBUTIL_HOST.BLOCKING('cmd /c C:\Windows\System32\notepad.exe');
WEBUTIL_HOST.BLOCKING('cmd /c C:\Windows\System32\calc.exe');

I use Forms on Windows 7.

Does anyone have any idea or can test that if it works?

thx Alfred
