THE - adding programs

this time an extra topic because i'm having some more issues adding software to THE menu:
now this doesn't have to anything to do with boingbags 3/4 anymore, it's simply THE related.

first problem: wordworth won't start from menu, it quits with error shown in screenshot #1.
in fact wordworth is correctly installed, i can launch it from its folder (sysffice/wordworth7) and from amigaos 3.9 dock.
this error only occurs if i try to launch the program from workbench menu.
here is THE entry for wordworth:
Code:
MENU ADD NAME '"Wordworth"' TITLE '"\Apps\Office\Wordworth"' CMD "'address command ''SYS:Office/Wordworth7/Wordworth'''"
second problem: tvpaint also refuses to start from menu, it quits with error shown in screenshot #2.
same here, tvpaint works if launched from its folder or from amigaos 3.9 dock. works not from menu...
here is THE entry for tvpaint:
Code:
MENU ADD NAME '"TVPaint"' TITLE '"\Apps\Office\TVPaint"' CMD "'address command ''SYS:Office/TVPaint3.6/TVPaint'''"

I would try to launch the programs with WBRun. So add "WBRun SYS:Office/..." in your script.

Maybe you can add a CD for WW and a Stack <value> for TVPaint, so WBRuns isn't needed. Try it or leave it.

is there any documentation for THE in combination with wbrun you suggest? preferably in german language?
because this sounds way too complicated for me and i don't know how to add stack values to menu script.
just to be honest, i know pretty much nothing about THE, i'm totally noob in this matter. thanks in advance!

A german manual is included with THE, the part about wbrun is under FAQ. The first question.
Try to look in locale/help/deutsch - this is where it was installed. you can choose not to install docs, in that case have a look in the THE archive.

btw: rtfm

Code:
MENU ADD NAME '"Wordworth"' TITLE '"\Apps\Office\Wordworth"' CMD "'address command ''wbrun SYS:Office/Wordworth7/Wordworth'''"
