Masen,

The third parameter is the working directory, not the full path and name of the executable. Try changing the line to read:

ShellExecute ("Masen's Headquarter Interface.exe","", "C:\Users\masen\Desktop\HQ-General" ,"open","@SW_MAXIMIZE")

Try this:

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Button1
            Call("Run")
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func Run()
    ShellExecute ("Masen's Headquarter Interface.exe","", "C:\Users\masen\Desktop\HQ-General" ,"open", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
EndFunc

You've added Exit after you clicked the "Home" Button.

I don't know which editor you use, but if it is scite, press Ctrl+t in the code window.

It cleans it a bit.

Hi

Tidy (the Ctrl+T (clean)) comment referred to above will make your code look nice by aligning tabs etc.  Try it.

I do not think naming a function "Run" - which is also an internal AutoIt function name, is a good idea, rather use something like _Run() or myRun()
