LaunchApplication strangeness on OSX - Mac Programming

Sorry to be asking so many questions on this list---I really hope to fulfill my duties and start answering lots of questions soon:) My newest question is about the behavior of LaunchApplication. I want my application, when it quits, to launch a BOA. I handle this with LaunchApplication. However, and rather strangely, the application that calls LaunchApplication won't get "released" until the other application (the BOA) quits. This becomes a problem when the BOA does some intensive looping (without calling GNE/WNE, maybe that's the problem?). So both applications freeze up until the BOA exits its looping. Is there another way ...

    Default LaunchApplication strangeness on OSX

    Sorry to be asking so many questions on this list---I really hope to fulfill
    my duties and start answering lots of questions soon:)

    My newest question is about the behavior of LaunchApplication. I want my
    application, when it quits, to launch a BOA. I handle this with
    LaunchApplication.

    However, and rather strangely, the application that calls LaunchApplication
    won't get "released" until the other application (the BOA) quits. This
    becomes a problem when the BOA does some intensive looping (without calling
    GNE/WNE, maybe that's the problem?). So both applications freeze up until
    the BOA exits its looping.

    Is there another way to launch this BOA without running into this mess? If
    I just open it from the finder, there is no problem.

    Thanks,

    Mike Hunson

    All you have to do is clear the launchContinue flag in the app. When you call
    LaunchApplication, the app will exit automatically.

    I tried that, it didn't work. It still freezes up until the launched-app
    quits.
