Yanez,

Ah, so Comodo was blocking it from running. Glad you got it sorted.

For some reason this has stopped working. I tried re-do everything and it's still the same. Wonder if some windows update broke it.

Never mind. It's working again. I was confusing it with another solution using right-clicking on the folder icon.
