Using which syntax? I've tried Run, ProcessWait and ShellExecute.

The path I'm trying to execute is C:\program files\winamp\winamp.exe

$Program_Location = "C:\program files\winamp\winamp.exe"

If FileExists($Program_Location) Then
    Run($Program_Location)
Else
    MsgBox(64,"Error!!", "The file does not exist" & @CRLF & $Program_Location, 5)
EndIf

RunWait("C:\program files\winamp\winamp.exe")

Show your syntax when you want assistance ...

Perfect, thank you. I don't know why it didn't work the first 20 times but that program_location did the trick.
