ShellExecute explained?

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I am fairly new to all of this and was wanting some help. I am currently trying to run a program with a set of parameters but am not sure how to do it. I have been looking through the help manual for ages and found this:

ShellExecute ( "filename" [, "parameters" [, "workingdir" [, "verb" [, showflag]]]] )

I was wanting some help to figure out the "parameters part. Anytime I try to put something there it won't work. Is there a certian format I need to write them in. Currently they are just being writting like so.

abc123.exe -parameter1 "-parameter number 2"

and so on. I feel the way they are written is what is causing me trouble.

Show some actual code you have tried and the commandline you tested with that is running.
