The "/D" comes from the CD command (back when us old farts did everything from the CLI and had to know all this stuff). CD /D will change the current drive in addition to changing the current directory. Start /d "c:\windows" explorer.exe Essentially does the following: C: Cd \windows Explorer.exe If you did Start /d "j:\folder1\folder2" someprogram.exe Does: J: Cd \folder1\folder2 Someprogram.exe Does that help?

We are looking to publish out the windows explorer for file management. In a Citrix article, the best practice is to use the "iexplore.exe /e" method to open it. Issue: When calling it in this method, when a user closes out the window to close the session, the iexplore process hangs around and does not close, thus the session stays open. I thought may user the LogoffCheckSysModules in the registry to close this upon session close out time, but it kills the process right away when attempting to open. Anyone see this before or have any thought? Also, if anyone is using any 3rd party file manager utilities, please feel free to respond as well and give me your feed back.
