# Windows 7: Running command prompt commands elsewhere...

 05 Nov 2010 #1 freelancer91 DT and LT: Windows 7 and Fedora 14 75 posts Running command prompt commands elsewhere... I am trying to configure RightMark Clock Utility to execute the "start" command when the power source for my computer changes. For example, I would want to run this: Code: start /MIN "" "C:Path\to\Program" I am choosing the start command because it gives me the option to use the /min parameter. The problem is that when I test it out, it doesn't seem to work. The programs don't start. I know that I can get it to run a command like Code: net start Service But start won't work. Any idea why and how I might fix it? I don't want to have to create a bunch of batch files for each command (if I put them in one, it will take much longer because it will wait for each one to complete before the next one starts and I have a lot of programs to start/close when the power source switches) My System Specs
