Something like this doesn't seem to work in Sikuli

openApp("C:\Program Files\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe")

Any suggestions?

The string you are providing "C:\Program Files\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe" contains shortcut commands for Sikuli. The key command you are calling is \f. To remedy this, use capital letters after \'s. So your string should read: "C:\Program Files\Foobar2000\Foobar2000.exe"

Thanks for the reply. How about something like this?

switchApp("C:\Program Files\Arbortext\CSDB for S1000D\ACQUIREDcs.exe")

Can you try this command: switchApp("C:\\Program Files\\Arbortext\\CSDB for S1000D\\ACQUIREDcs.exe")?

Can you help with this problem?
