Explains how to start PMV/ADT on Windows without using Shortcuts.

If PMV/ADT fails to start or terminate unexpectedly your command prompt window disappears, which is unfortunate, because it might provide important clues on how to solve the problem. Please follow these steps to insure that your command prompt window stays open.

Step 1: Open command prompt window: Start → Run → cmd:  http://commandwindows.com/runline.htm
Step 2: Type the full path to pmv.bat (e.g. "C:\Program Files\MGLTools $version\pmv.bat" ) and hit Enter.

If you are getting:
'C:\Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
please read DOS Lessons or Google Answers.
