Start a program in a new window or session
Both OS/2 and Windows (32 and 64 bits) feature a START command to start a program in a new, separate, session.
There are some differences between OS/2's START command syntax and NT's START command syntax, though.

START C:\WINNT\System32\ssmarque.scr /C
START C:\WINNT\System32\ssmarque.scr /S
