Hi Martins,

try it with this Code:

WinExec('rundll32 shell32.dll, Control_RunDLL desk.cpl, , 0', SW_SHOW);

Just a comment.
You should not use WinExec. WinExec is provided only for backwards compatibility with 16 bit versions of windows. 32 bit versions of windows should call CreateProcess or the ShellExecute functions:

uses shellapi;

ShellExecute(form1.Handle,'open', 'rundll32', 'shell32.dll, Control_RunDLL desk.cpl, , 0', nil, SW_SHOW);

you can also change the first parameter to 0 if you want desktop to be the owner of the dialog.

SW_SHOWNORMAL should be used when displaying a window for the first time (as per stated in the help)! :)
