What are the values collected beforehand stored in?
looks like you're missing the point of the system() function.
this function sends a c-string to the creating process to be evaluated.

try this instead:

std::string s;
s = std::string("xfer.bat ") + app + std::string(" ") + version + std::string(" ") + file;
system( s.c_str() );

this method assumes that app, version and file are string objects.
ok ill try that and the app version and file are just local variable strings
that worked perfect thanks!
