I need to open Apache from my program

The link in the start menu is "C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\bin\Apache.exe" -n "Apache2" -k start

How would I have my program open this _exact_ link above?  (I know how to do it if it didn't have the -n crap on the end).

Did you try:

Shell "C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\bin\Apache.exe -n Apache2 -k start"
