From the Autoit help file


Runs an external program.

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



filename The 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)  <==== LOOK HERE

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.
