i have built a gui who is writing a xml-file for. now i want to start an external program called "sumo" with the windows console.
status = dos('C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe');
[status, result] = dos ('C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe','sumo-gui -c szenario.sumo.cfg');
i want that the dos command opens and this "'sumo-gui -c szenario.sumo.cfg'" should be peformed!
but on my way it doesnt work!
Thank you for your help!!

dos ('sumo-gui -c szenario.sumo.cfg') this should do in my opinion, provided path of sumo is in the windows path.

No need to open the console. 'dos' itself does that if needed. you can just do a dos ('sumo-gui -c szenario.sumo.cfg').
