Check RUN in the helpfile.

Local $Shortcut = "{BA126ADB-21166-11D1-B1D0-00805FC1270E}"



Runs an external program.

Run ( "filename" [, "workingdir" [, flag]] )


filename The full name of the executable (EXE, BAT, COM, or PIF) to run.

workingdir [optional] The working directory.

flag [optional] The "show" flag of the executed program:

@SW_HIDE = Hidden window

@SW_MINIMIZE = Minimized window

@SW_MAXIMIZE = Maximized window

Return Value

Success: The PID of the process that was launched.

Failure: Depends on RunErrorsFatal; see Remarks.


To run DOS (console) commands, try RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & 'commandName', "", @SW_HIDE)

WorkingDir is NOT the same as the path to the executable! For example, running a file from a floppy disk:

Bad: Run("myProg.exe", "A:") ; Wrong! This will most likely fail!

Good: Run("A:\myProg.exe") ; Correct because FULL path to executable was given

After running the requested program the script continues. To pause execution of the script until the spawned program has finished use the RunWait function instead.

By default the script will terminate with a fatal error if the Run function fails. To set @error to 1 as an indication of failure, see AutoItSetOption.


RunAsSet, RunErrorsFatal (Option), RunWait


Run("Notepad.exe", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

Please ALWAYS consult the help file!

As {BA126ADB-21166-11D1-B1D0-00805FC1270E} is not an executable file (and probably not even a file at all) I doubt that Run() will work. If it doesn't then I would suggest grabbing SlimShady's _ShellExecute UDF and using it instead of Run():

; Paste the code from that post into your script and then:
