Perl exec system

Can someone provide me with the correct setup to call a Perl executable through LabView. I have provided an example of a VI that is simply supposed to call the executable, but all it will do is open a command window. I am working on a windows XP machine and LabView 8.2.file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/xm131c/Desktop/Call_EXE.vi

The command line input should be "cmd /c [drive:][directory][xxx.exe]". You have "cmd/ " at the beginning, which should be "cmd /c ". Give that a try and see if you can get it to work.
