Sure, please have a look at function "Run" in the help file.

To get the full path you need to have a look a the _PathFull function.

It' s not exactly that I looking for... I try to explain better, I need to open a file at whatever path, retrieve the full path of opened file and pass it to an external executable (in this case mpc-be.exe). the dos function %~f1 is that I try to obtain.

The batch: cd /d "%~dp0 start "" "mpc-be.exe" "%~f1" execute mpc-be.exe at current directory and run the file at path retrieved with %~f1 in Autoit it would be like:

run(mpc-be.exe $retrievedpath)... any way to obtain that?

If the user selects the file from a dialog then you could run something like this:

Global $fullpath = FileOpenDialog(...)
Run(@ScriptDir & "\mpc-be.exe" & ' "' & $fullpath & '"')
