Run Command

An entry's 'Run Command' field can contain a command that will be run when the Run Command action is selected. Anything that you can do in Windows' "Start → Run" can be used here.

In addition, Password Safe is able to pass arguments to the command such as the entry's username, password, etc., as described below. This allows you to 'program' fairly complex actions, such as invoking a remote access program (PuTTY, for example) and passing it the username and password associated with the entry.

In general, 'variables' are replaced with values associated with them before being passed to the computer for execution. The dollar ('$') sign is used to indicate a variable.
