How to define an exe filename to run?

Hi Friends,

I have done the program to run an exe from Navision program which is given below. This is working successfully.
  WinStyle := 0;
  WaitForCommand := FALSE;
  WSHShell.CurrentDirectory := 'C:\Program Files\TestUAT_160212\';
  WSHShell.Run('"C:\Program Files\TestUAT_160212\recex1.exe"',WinStyle);

My requirement is to run an .exe file which is something like this i.e., instead of recex1.exe, I need to mention as
recex1.exe /recex /xml

If I give the statement as below,
WSHShell.Run('"C:\Program Files\TestUAT_160212\recex1.exe /recex /xml"',WinStyle);

I am getting an error as follows...
This message is for C/AL programmers:

An exception was raised in method Append. The OLE control or Automation server has returned error (HRESULT) -2147352567. The component did not provide the exception description.

Can any one help me how to define it?

Thanks in advance,
Aravindh R.

    You probably misplaced the "-character. Try this:
    WSHShell.Run('"C:\Program Files\TestUAT_160212\recex1.exe" /recex /xml',WinStyle);
