I am running Apache (in WampServer) as a web server in my Windows machine so that I can locally test php web pages. I am also using it to locally keep track of files. For this I need to be able to launch a Windows program (such as Beyond Compare) to view and compare files. So Apache needs to create a new process and immediately return. I have tried SCHTASKS with limited success. Any ideas?
