bool Run(string)

Return Type: bool
Parameters: string Command

The Run function runs any operating system command, including commands such as 'dir'. It will also run executables like the System function, however Run waits for the new application or process to complete before continuing with the script.

The input Command is a string containing operating system command. This can be any executable or batch file recognizable by the operating system. It can contain either the full path or a relative path.
