You will need to specify the full path. On my 64bit system this is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox 4.0 Beta 5\firefox.exe". It will be different on yours.

In that case it will be under C:\Program Files. One easy way to find it is to right click on a shortcut to FF and select "Open file location".

If nightly is a folder you will have to add \firefox.exe.

You missed the "" for a start

if you are trying to run an executable, you need to specfy that too.

e.g. "c:\program files\myfolder\whatever.exe"
