So your notepad executable is called -notepad in stead of notepad.exe..   and you like to have 2 cmd.exe's started also with the required  cmd.exe parameter?

Oh...and even if it would work you would like you hide it?

I am sure you can do much better than this with a little research.

No, I put notepad in place of an executable that I have for a program that's installed so that everyone can use it.
So I tried to update my code based on yoru suggestion.
 

Local $iPID = Run(@ComSpec & "notepad", @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE)

That doesn't work either.

I'm trying to run CMD in a hidden window and launch an EXE, which is notepad in this case and will be my installed program once I put that in.

... there are ample examples in the helpfile and honestly the Run() helpfile example runs notepad so what is the issue with that way?
