use the shell command.


shell "c:\path\program.exe"

Open in new window


if you have spaces in your path use double quotes wrapped in single quotes.

shell ' "c:\program files\program\program.exe" '

Open in new window



If you are wanting to redirect output from say a ping...  call %comspec% /c before your exe.

shell '%comspec% /c ping 4.2.2.2 > ping.txt'

Open in new window
