This FAQ describes how to run Control Panel (and other) tools in Windows from MMB script.

Rundll32.exe is used by Windows to launch actions defined in DLLs. One of its capabilities is running Control Panel tools (applets). Using Rundll32.exe, you can launch the applets from a CPL file, and you can cause the applet to open on a particular page.

Basic Script Syntax:

Run("rundll32.exe","shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL filename.cpl")

General syntax:

Run("rundll32.exe","shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL filename.cpl,@n,t") where filename.cpl is the name of one of Control Panel's *.CPL files, n is the zero based number of the applet within the *.CPL file, and t is the number of the tab for multi paged applets.

To select a particular applet within the file, append a comma, an @ sign, and the number of the applet. Launch the keyboard applet, which is the second applet within Main.cpl, you would use: Run(" rundll32.exe","shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL main.cpl,@1")

Some multipage applets are designed so that they can be opened at a particular page. You must specify the applet number (@0 for a single-applet file). Then append a comma and the page number. This line launches the Display Properties dialog and opens to the Appearance page (the third page; number two ): Run("rundll32.exe","shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL desk.cpl,@0,2")
