This works on my computer - much easier than the convoluted script I was
I think Chipp's adding in the shortfilepath function was the key...
Earlier attempts at using this approach did not work for me, presumably
because quotes and spaces were confusing 'start'.

Got it working. Pretty simple actually:
Here's the guts (after putting the filepath into fld "docPath")
put shortFilePath(fld "docPath") into tDocPath
replace "/" with "\" in tDocPath
put "start" && tDocPath into tDosCommand
set the hideconsolewindows to true
Here's a demo: type in the message:
