Starting an Apple application with a startup switch

I need to start an application:

 "/Applications/Adobe ColdFusion Builder 2 Beta/" -clean

I tried from terminal but I am not certain how to call it.  
How/where do I call the above command in Apple OS X 10.6.7?
In windows i could call similar start switches from the 'run' command prompt.

What you have type above should be sufficient in the terminal, have you double checked the app is specified in the correct path?

-- try this::

sudo "Applications... ...CF Builder" -clean

Type your administrator account password when prompted. [if you have the root user active, type this password when prompted]

You could also navigate to that directory, confirm the app is there and type ::

sudo "CF Builder" -clean

If you want to launch this from an icon then you could get it working from the Terminal; then create an Automator task/application to run the terminal command.

sudo was the command i needed.
Thank you.

Perfect.  sudo was the command I needed rather than open
