# Should probably have a try block around this as not every install
# of 9.1.2 has the NOS package on it. This is a little touchy so you may have to
# play around with it.
#
# This is a super lame way to do this but it makes it more educational.

# Here are two ways to execute this exploit. If you leave both commented just the batch file is created.

# Silent Way - This should be more stealthy
#retval = subprocess.call("Dr_IDE-Adobe.bat");

# Louder Way - On some systems this will probably open a DOS window
#retval = os.system("Dr_IDE-Adobe.bat");
