I have a script that has been "compiled" using rubyscript2exe and that
script executes another script at various times.  However the second
isn't part of the main program as it needs to run independently.  I
get the second script to run.

This is what I am trying:

ruby_path = RUBYSCRIPT2EXE.appdir.gsub(/app[\/|\\]/, "bin/ruby.exe")
sd_script = "#{ruby_path} #{TEMP_DIR}shutdown.rb " +
system "start #{sd_script}"

Instead of running the shutdown script I get an explorer window.  I was
hoping to do this without having to turn the shutdown.rb script into a
separate exe as they are kind of large.
