I want to convert .dsp to .daa files in vc2010 mfc
I have .exe file which converts .dsp files to .daa files
I want to call that in my application and pass the .txt file (MS-DOS) which has a list of .dsp files
I have used shellexecute to call .exe file(which convert.dsp to daa )and passed that text file
I called.exe on button clicked event then it asked for me to pass file which has a list of .dsp files
whenever I entered filename (List.txt)it gives message that "can not open the .dsp file to read the header"

ShellExecute(NULL,("open"), ("C:\\dspTOdaa.exe"),"C:\\List.txt",NULL,SW_SHOWNORMAL);
any idea why i got this message?

Thank you.

Probably because dspTOdaa.exe cannot open the .dsp file, just like it says.

DSP files (old-verision of file project) are not too long. Can you show one? And they should be converted to project files, not to *.daa.

Please see my comment to the question. It does not seem to make sense. You can simply open a .dsp file using Visual Studio. It will try to convert it to the project file of the newest version, and it should be named *.vcproj.
I have no idea what's dspToDaa.exe, and .daa can be an optical drive image, that is, something unrelated to Visual Studio projects.
