    How do you embed an application which needs a file as a parameter?
    I'm looking to add items from the Control Panel into my skin. To do this I need to be able to run, for example, "c:\windows\system32\control.exe sysdn.cpl" . I need control.exe to open sysdn.cpl . There needs to be a SPACE or a forward slash ( / ) before the.cpl file. I've tried putting this directly in as the command e.g:

    "LOAD;SYSTEM.skin;System Properties;c:\windows\system32\control.exe sysdn.cpl;!32770!System Properties"

    or

    "LOAD;SYSTEM.skin;System Properties;c:\windows\system32\control.exe /sysdn.cpl;!32770!System Properties"

    but it doesn't work. The only work around I can see that works at the moment is using batch files to open the windows but its messy as a cmd prompt windows opens aswell.

    Any help is appreciated.

    try

    Code:
    LOAD;SYSTEM.skin;System Properties;c:\windows\system32\control.exe" "/sysdn.cpl;!32770!System Properties
    OR

    Code:
    LOAD;SYSTEM.skin;System Properties;c:\windows\system32\control.exe|/sysdn.cpl;!32770!System Properties

      not sure how you would run a control panel item, but to run a file as a parameter it would look like this

      "RUN;DIR\DIR\program.exe|file.doc;windowtitle"
