Default Run: system ("start....) in mac OS

Hi, I know that there is how to open an application by using a mel script...
I cant open photoshop CS3 in my OS 10.4.10 mac. Photoshop is at the Application folder.
How do I open the photoshop by maya? (I'm using maya 8.0)
the command should be something like : system ("start /...the path.../phtoshop.app") right?

Thanks.

hello,

I use a PC rather than a Mac but this works for me......

system("start C:/Program Files/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop CS3/Photoshop.exe");

hope you can get something from it.

Mat.

Iíve never tried that before, but on a Mac it would probably be like this (if you installed it correctly):
system("start Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS3/Adobe Photoshop CS3.app");
