Command Prompt oddities
So I've got this Autohotkey script that I use to replace explorer.exe. I'm trying to get a command line working (instead of the standard Win+R), however I'm running into some odd problems.
I'm an admin user, and if I run cmd from Win+R, I don't have any problems. I can run every command I can think of that exists in the System32 folder. For example, I can run 'sndvol' and 'soundrecorder' without problems.
However, whenever I run a command from Autohotkey (which is running as admin), or even run a command from the command prompt that was initiated from Autohotkey, some things don't seem to be recognized. For example, I can run 'sndvol' no problem, but I can't run 'soundrecorder'.
I did notice something though, when I run Autohotkey as admin, the command prompt inherits that and it gets "Administrator:" at the beginning of the window title. However, this isn't making a difference, because running Autohotkey not as admin produces the same results.
So basically, the question is, what can cause the command prompt to not recognize certain commands? Is it a privilege issue? Is it an issue with those commands? What can I try?
Very odd problem... I would greatly appreciate help.

No, sounds like a path issue - run echo %path% in a regular cmd prompt, and then again in the autohotkey cmd prompt and compare the differences. I'll bet the autohotkey's path is different - you may need to pass the full path when calling .exes under a cmd prompt run as a different user (as "run as administrator" does).
