iCUE won't launch .cmd .bat or custom .exe files or shortcuts with arguments.

hello forum users. 

I'd like to pause and play my wallpaper engine 

wallpaper engine allows you to do this buy passing arguments into it's shortcut, or it's .exe
such as: 
.\wallpaper64.exe -control play 
.\wallpaper64.exe -control pause

I have made this work in these formats:
 a shortcut with arguments
 a .bat file
 a .cmd file
 a custom .exe file

all of these formats work when launched directly via file explorer in windows 10, however none of them work when using "launch application" bound to either my K100's G-keys or my Nexus. 

TL:DR; how do I get this to work via "launch application" macros in iCUE? because i'm about ready to make a massive keyboard macro for the Win+R command.

Agree 100%.

I wanted to add an application with arguments and could not do it.

I had to resort to the awful Logitech GHub software (I use a Logitech mouse) which, as lousy as it is, allows you to separately enter arguments for any Launch Application setting.  The uploaded pic shows how GHub does it.

Corsair, you have to get in gear here and modify iCue to provide this functionality.  Your competitors are beating you to the punch.

If necessary I will start another thread on this to highlight its importance.

having browsed the forums for a while before I posted this, it looks like it used to work in Icue versions 3.3xxx and lower. 
I'd love to know why this functionality didn't make it into iCUE 4.x+

I have a couple of .BAT configure to change the audio source and works very good (they area assigned to my Scimitar pro gKeys)

Here's a screenshot of my configuration:

When you press the gKey, is any message that is shown?

The issue happen with every gKey?
