    Launch external exe

    Alexey Mironov

      Hello evrybody!

      Dose anybody now now to launch an external exe (WinMobile platform)?

      Traditional Ruby's methods as system,exec dose not work on real device (work on rhosimulator).

      run_app method also work only with registred app....
