If on Mac OSX I think it's something like:
open the moviePath & "QuickTime.pkg" with "installer.app"
But you might want to check the archives to see more discussions about it.
If you have a 3rd party Xtra such as Buddy API, DirectOS, or FileXtra, you
can use their equivalent to Lingo's 'open' to run a program. These Xtras
provide you with a helpful return code while 'open' doesn't.
