Set priority Command Line Option ?

Hello guys,
I have an application (VFP) that I need to launch but with a highest priority.
is there any command line switch to do that ?

You need to specify those details in the question.  Also, what OS are you running?

I just ran start /high calc (started calculator and that worked fine).

Start should work.  I just tried notepad.EXE, calc.EXE, and MySQL Control Center (mysqlcc.EXE) and all worked fine.

Are you doing this like I suggested:

START /HIGH app.exe

or are you doing this in the wrong sequence:

START app.exe /HIGH

If you do it with the /HIGH at the end, start assumes it's a parameter for app.exe and won't do what you want it to.

Execute the program with the START command - run START /HIGH APP.EXE - but I recommend running START /? from a command prompt to get a better understanding of all your options.

It is not that simple ! I have tried this before posting the question !
The pb is that my application is an exe file.

in the command prompt when I issue myapp.exe /high it starts then it gives me an error message high does not exist.....

my second issue is what to do then in the shortcut on my desktop !!!
