Does it work if you leave off the quotes? For example:
The variable is automatically treated as though it is quoted, so you
don't need the extra ones. I don't really think that's the problem but
it is easy to try.
I'm interested in knowing if you figure this out. Someone wrote to tech
support and said the launch command wasn't working, but after seeing
your post I wonder if it is launching invisibly instead. He is running
XP like you are.
