fscommand in .as with arguments

Hi there....

So here is the deal. I am working with a projector in flash 8, the .exe file. Resides in folder "myproject".
I also have a GO.BAT file under myproject\fscommand with this code:
c:\i_viewer.exe %1
This exe file is Irfant Viewer. Just a simple viewer to see images. The %1 is the argument of the file I want to see.

Under myproject/images there are lots of images.

I also have a button that runs this actionscript within flash
var filename:String=.........
fscommand("Exec", "GO" add MbChr(9) add filename)

I have also tried "Go.bat " + filename //  "Go.bat_20" + filename..etc etc

nothing seems to work, unless the command is fscommand("Exec","Go.bat"). anything different that this, just does not do anything.

One more thing. The function that calls the button in under myproject/code/source/Functions.As and it is imported to the main fla file.

Any hints?
