              root_container TYPE REF TO cl_wd_transparent_container.


   IF first_time = 'X'.

     root_element = view->get_root_element( ).

     root_container ?= root_element.

*   init GAC control

     wd_this->m_control = cl_wd_acf_execute=>new_acf_execute( ).

     wd_this->m_control->set_enabled( abap_true ).

     wd_this->acf_method_handler ?= wd_this->m_control->_method_handler.

*   Create AcfExecute UI

     cl_wd_matrix_data=>new_matrix_data( element = wd_this->m_control ).

     root_container->add_child( wd_this->m_control ).

       lo_el_context = wd_context->get_lead_selection( ).

       lo_el_context_stru-attribute_name = 'ERROR'.

       lo_el_context_stru-element = lo_el_context.

       wd_this->acf_method_handler->if_wd_acfexecute~execute( application  application

                                                                                             argumentlist = argumentlist

                                                                                             errorinformation = lo_el_context_stru ).

   CATCH cx_wd_acf_exception INTO lr_acf_exp.


       lv_msg_text = lr_acf_exp->if_message~get_text( ).

*       get message manager

       data lo_api_controller     type ref to if_wd_controller.

"MS notepad application path
    lv_application =

    wd_this->call_acf_execute( application = lv_application ).      

I have specified the location of the executable file as in my system .Use you own file location in case if it is different.

7. Right click on WebDynpro Component and click on Create WebDynpro Application.
