Howdy all,

I'm trying to use passthru to run a batch file that is in the same directory as my script.  I keep getting the error "CGI Error The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers.".  I've googled for a while now but I haven't been able to find any pertinant help.  Here's my simple  test batch file called copy.bat.

copy functions.php ..\functions.php

Here's how I'm launching it from PHP:

echo passthru("start /b copy.bat > logme.txt", $return);
echo "return:" . $return . "<br>";


Here's My Specs:
Windows Server 2003
PHP 4.3

Looks simple enough, but I can't get past this error.  Any ideas?
