Starting control panel items via GUID

Recommended Posts

I have a script that I want to add a button that opens the "edit environment variables" popup, and I have its GUID.  From a windows shortcut, I can do it like this:


I tried to do it via RUN, but I get an error.
Here is my test code:


Func test()
    Local $exe, $res, $err

    $exe = '"GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}"'

    $res = Run($exe)

    $err = @error
    ConsoleWrite("+++: $res = " & $res & ", $err = " & $err & @CRLF)

EndFunc   ;==>test

Ok, thank you, that made it run without errors.  However, that hex string opened a control 'all tasks' panel GUI.  I need to find the correct hex string that opens the environmeny variable editor.  That's probably off-topic, but if anyone knows the correct hex string, please let me know.

Here are the ones that I know and that worked:

run('explorer.exe shell:::{00C6D95F-329C-409a-81D7-C46C66EA7F33}') ; default location
