outlook and run

I am trying to run the following command. c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\OUTLOOK.EXE /a FlieNameAndPath from autoit. This is giving me invalid switches errors, but when I run the same command from dos or the run box in windows, it works fine.

What would be the best method in AutoIT for running this command?

Try this:

$FileNameAndPath = "Whatever your filename and path is"
Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\OUTLOOK.EXE /a " & $FileNameAndPath)

Works for me, with:

Run ('"c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\OUTLOOK.EXE" /a "E:\desktop.ini"')

Note that the program filename and the attachment filename are surrounded by double quotes ("), and the whole expression is surrounded by single quotes (') so that the double quotes are not interpreted as the end of the string.
