"keeps" the window open,
"closes" the window after executing the command.
However, when I use "start ..notetab.exe" (assuming proper placement

The window closes after executing "start ...". NoteTab starts OK, the
DOS windows goes away.
All shell commands are sensitive to quotes, spaces, etc. To be
absolutely sure, that I don't run into quote problems, I sometimes
use the DOS 8+3 path and filenames.
