as I said, I did not try it, just know what you already know. But when you see C:\Path\ansysedt.exe" -someparameter -anotherparameter file1 file2, that simply means that file 1, and file2 should be in the same directory, and you should execute the program from that directory as current directory. It is not linux, you don't have to provide the fullpath, or put it in a specific place, unless the program is really weird. the program itself is with path, because it is not in the PATH search list of Win/DOS. P.S. in dos console (cmd) the directory change command is the same, "cd c:\..." just the delimiter "\" is opposite.
