Run Command

If the Run command is disabled, the corresponding RunAtStartEnable, RunAtPageEnable, RunAtFileEnable, or RunAtEndEnable flag must be set to "1" in a control string in order for the application to run as scheduled. The application can be temporarily disabled by setting the flag to "0".

Because some applications interpret backslashes ( \ ) as line separators, use forward slashes ( / ) rather than backslashes to designate paths and other values in your control strings to ensure they work properly.
