I've been trying to figure this out for a couple of days, and I've read through
every post I can find on here on the subject, but to no avail.

I've got an ini file that looks like this:

Post_Frame_Return=U
Post_Frame_Command=notepad.exe

And when I render a scene using that ini file, it renders correctly but then
gives me this error:

Render halted because the post-frame shell-out ('notepad.exe') requested POV-Ray
to generate a user abort.
Render failed

.....and it doesn't open notepad.

I've unchecked the "Disable Starting Other Programs" and I've tried various
variations on what exe to run and whether to do it Pre/Post Frame/Scene, and
nothing has worked. I'm using POV 3.7 RC6 on Windows 7.

Has anyone got this working?

Please create a bug for this on bugs.povray.org and I'll look into it.
