When trying to debug an app object that runs a program that opens a DOS command window, the window opens and closes before you can read any error messages.

SOLUTION: Move the command from the "Path to file:" window to the beginning of the "Parameters" window (don't forget a space between the command and any parameters). Then put "cmd /k" in the "Path to file:" window. This will hold the command window open until it is closed manually.
