Re: How do I insert input in Install command?

Hello,

Your filename should be a String.  (This is true in general in 
Mathematica, not just for the Install function: any function that takes
a  filename will expect that filename as a String.)

Also, when you use the backslash in a filename, you need to escape the 
backslash, so that Mathematica doesn't think that your filename has the
special characters '\m' and '\a' in it.

So, your call to Install should look like this:

 	myprog = Install["c:\\maths\\addtwo.exe"]
