Automatically launching an executable

I am seeking to run an application (.exe) repeatedly in a loop. Due to the nature of the program, I have to close and open it each time I operate it.
I am using actxserver() since I have to send commands to the executable
%Operate application
exeserver = actxserver("WScript.Shell");
The issue is that this security window pops up (as a window within MATLAB) so I must still choose 'Run' each time through the loop.
Is there any way to either bypass this window or interact with this window from within MATLAB.

Looks like a warning from Windows, not from matlab.
Try to run matlab as admin.
