How do I launch a Processing app? launch() FIXED! (use a shortcut if a program does not launch!)

how do i launch a processing app, that need contents like “data” and “lib” to open? i wanna launch a splashscreen sooo

I just found out making a shortcut to an application works 100% fine, so if you have a script that needs to be executed by another pde sketch, just use an shortcut for the exe file!

It will need some modifications on your part.


i tried that, it sadly doesnt work. i actually dont know why

This may give you some insight:

The example above builds the batch file.
You could just create it manually if you know your paths.
