Func _RunDOS($sCommand)
    Local $nResult = RunWait(@ComSpec & " /C " & $sCommand, "", @SW_HIDE)
    Return SetError(@error, @extended, $nResult)
EndFunc   ;==>_RunDOS

RunWait? No real 'difference', as RunDOS utilizes @ComSpec /c...

When you say "while others cannot", what happens exactly?

Does a command prompt open and then just disappear without executing the expected command?

Also, are you familiar with the "@Comspec & "/k" switch?

It prevents the command prompt from closing after execution, and is useful for seeing any error messages output by the command.
