Load program from CMD

I have a .ini file that holds my path for our mapping software. I can't seem to get the CMD function to read the file path. I removed everything but the file path but it doesn't work.

[ArcGIS Desktop]
Path=C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local\ESRI\Desktop10.1\Launcher.exe

Local Const $sFilePath = @ScriptDir & "\Mapping\Path\ " & "Path" & ".ini"
    Local $sFilewrite = IniWrite($sFilePath, "ArcGIS Desktop", "Path=", "C:\Users\aa2zz6\AppData\Local\ESRI\Desktop10.1\Launcher.exe")
    Func Start()
    $MyCommand = $sFilewrite
    Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & $MyCommand, @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE)
    EndFunc   ;==>Start

Credit to MHz for creating the CMD part.

Creating the .ini file

;Create a constant variable in Local scope of the filepath that will be read/written to.
    Local Const $sFilePath = @ScriptDir & "\Mapping\" & "Config.ini"

    Local $sFilewrite = 'IGNORE_ERRORS=' & IniWrite($sFilePath, "settings", 'IGNORE_ERRORS', 1 &  @CRLF & 'Installer='&  $out)

$out is generated by another CMD process script that scans the hard drive in order to find the mapping software. But if you know the path won't change I would write it in like below.

;Create a constant variable in Local scope of the filepath that will be read/written to.
    Local Const $sFilePath = @ScriptDir & "\Mapping\" & "Config.ini"

    Local $sFilewrite = 'IGNORE_ERRORS=' & IniWrite($sFilePath, "settings", 'IGNORE_ERRORS', 1 &  @CRLF & 'Installer=' &  "C:\Users\aa2zz6\AppData\Local\ESRI\Desktop10.1\ArcGIS Desktop.exe")

.ini file will look like

Installer=C:\Users\aa2zz6\AppData\Local\ESRI\Desktop10.1\ArcGIS Desktop.exe

Reading file path to CMD

Global $Ignore, $Ini, $Installer, $Pid

; Ini Settings file
$Ini = @ScriptDir & "\Mapping\" & "Config.ini""
; Read Ini Setting: IGNORE_ERRORS=0 or IGNORE_ERRORS=1
$Ignore = 'IGNORE_ERRORS=' & IniRead($Ini, "Settings", "IGNORE_ERRORS", 0)
; Read Ini Setting: Installer to run later
$Installer = IniRead($Ini, "Settings", "Installer", "")

; If $Installer is something and $Installer exists, then run it.
If $Installer And FileExists($Installer) Then
    $Pid = Run('"' & @ComSpec & '" /c "' & $Installer & '" /v "' & $Ignore & '"', @ScriptDir, @SW_HIDE)
    ; Check if @error is set. (Use of Exit is optional as used for example)
    If @error Then Exit 1
    ; Wait for process to close
    ; Act on condition failure of $Installer
    If Not $Installer Then Exit 2
    If Not FileExists($Installer) Then Exit 3

      I am trying to allow the GUI to gather info as to when to execute a function.  I am having trouble doing this.  So far this is what I have.
      ;Timer Func timer () If Not IsDeclared("iMsgBoxAnswer") Then Local $iMsgBoxAnswer $iMsgBoxAnswer = MsgBox(36,"Timer","Please format your answer in 00:00:00:000") Select Case $iMsgBoxAnswer = 6 ;Yes Global $infotime = InputBox ('Time', 'What time to execute?') Do $rawtimer = ToolTip(@Hour & ':' & @Min & ':' & @Sec & ':' & _MSec()) until $rawtimer = $infotime if $rawtimer = $infotime Then msgbox (0,'Worked','Worked') Else EndIf Case $iMsgBoxAnswer = 7 ;No Exit EndSelect EndFunc Func _MSec() Local $stSystemTime = DllStructCreate('ushort;ushort;ushort;ushort;ushort;ushort;ushort;ushort') DllCall('kernel32.dll', 'none', 'GetSystemTime', 'ptr', DllStructGetPtr($stSystemTime)) $sMilliSeconds = StringFormat('%03d', DllStructGetData($stSystemTime, 8)) $stSystemTime = 0 Return $sMilliSeconds EndFunc I have also tried _GUIToolTip_GetText in order to read the tooltip until the time specified, but it still doesn't work.  Any help would be great.

      So I have a lot of different functions in the little program I'm making.  Most of them use the Do statement, such as finding images, clicking buttons, etc.
      The question I have is how would I be able to both
      1) Create a hotkey to pause whatever I am doing at the moment.  If I have to put something into every function in the program, I don't mind.
      2) Create a hotkey to exit whatever I am doing and stop all loops or commands and bring back the main GUI?
