How to Launch Windows App from FileMaker

As a Mac user I have some software that can only run on Windows :-(

Name of software is CSPaymentExpedient

me and Windows :-(

I would like my FileMaker app, when opening to


  1. check if the CSPaymentExpedient is running
  2. if not launch it.  BUT  with a “parameter” of viking


  • Regarding problem 1 -  I do not have any idea of how to solve this. And if I just launch the software again it just launches another instance, which I do not want.
  • Regarding problem 2 - On Windows I have been shown how to launch it via the command prompt by typing: C:\CSExpedient>CSPaymentExpedient.exe viking


Do you think this is possible via FileMaker ?

How please ?



I have Tror File installed and can launch the app with this - but not with the “parameter”


Best regards
