    It's a quad core and I want it not to use cpu 0. So it would be 1110. Which gave me an E.

    After trying everything, this worked.
    cmd.exe /c start "Sonar Platinum" /affinity E "C:\Program Files\Cakewalk\SONAR Platinum\sonarplt.exe"

    I had to leave the quotation marks on. Go figure, after so many years of every instruction telling me "without quotes"

    Thank you though. It works. Here's to hoping it helps with my problem.

    Great news.

    Yeah, whenever there's a space in the path, you'll usually need to wrap it in quotes.

    Can I add administrator privileges to the program as well?

    Sure you can. You could use OPTION SIX in the tutorial below to set the shortcut to always "Run as administrator".
