;one method

Run("mstsc.exe " & """" & C:\Documents and Settings\Me\My Documents\Connect To HAL9000.rdp & """")

Edit: Fixed missing ampersand.

Thanks for the tip, but I could not get it working...AutoIT return a runtime error. Maybe the problem is with the """". I played with it a little and could not get it working.

Anyway, the other method posted seemed to work okay so my script is up and going again.

Single quotes are easier to manage. Try this.

Run('mstsc.exe "' & @MyDocumentsDir & '\Connect To HAL9000.rdp"')
