Map a drive then run from dos.

Right click network neighborhood, Map network drive, choose a drive letter, browse or specify the UNC path to the share. (ie
\\servername\sharename) Or in your case \\servername\commerce\apps\currency or you can map to just the commerce dir and then cd to the apps and then the currency directory.

Once the mapping is setup. Swith to the drive letter in dos. run the executable from the location where the folder with the executable is .

I don't want to map the drive, because the security reason.  The NT server will logon and log off by different users.

net use \\server\share /u:<user> <pass>
(this will attach, but not map a drive)

(this will run the prog.exe)

net use \\server /d
(this will detach, but not map a drive)
