in reply to How to open a gif file with non-default application

Determine what works from the commandline and use that.

You probably want something like: start application_name filename

Perhaps you need quoting, switches or similar.

As you haven't told us what this non-default application is, it's rather difficult to advise what syntax you should be using.
