how does one pass arguments from a python script or model to a cmd exe? E.g. I need to pass
"C:\temp\program.exe -a 1 -b a" where "-a" is user-selected from a drop-down (range 1-10) and "-b" is user-selected from a drop-down (range a-z)

I tried attached the exe to a script and setting the two arguments in the parameters tab of the script properties but I get an error:

Executing: Script1

Start Time: Wed Jul 06 22:15:36 2011

Running script Script1...


000714: Error in script Script1.

Error in executing: C:\temp\program.exe -a 1 -b a"

Failed to execute (Script1).
