does it run under win9x if you doubleclick it from explorer ?

Maybe you're trying to use an API that doesn't exist in Win9x

Yep, but watch the blanks.
I recall that such a command line needs a blank somewhere or the other way round it does not allow a blank somewhere.

Hi,

The control panel applets are controlled by "control.exe" program.
Use that to run them.

HTH,

Andrew
