Question  How can I delay the execution of a program and pass that program its own parameters?

You can use our DelayExec program to delay before running a program. You can also pass any parameters to the program you want to run. This is done using the command line options of the software. It looks something like this:

delayexec.exe [filename and parameters] [delay in seconds]

The filename is the path to the file you would like to launch.
Parameters are any command line parameters that you want to pass to the filename.
The delay is the number of seconds you want to delay before launching the file.

Example: delay.exe "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe C:\Documents and Settings\Desktop\preview.pdf" 10

The example above would delay 10 seconds before launching Adobe Acrobat and launching the preview.pdf file from the desktop.
