I have tried many variations of:
ShellExecute(Handle, nil, 'cmd.exe /k MKDIR Clean', nil, nil, SW_HIDE);
with or without /k (what is it for anyway) and distributing the parameters in various ways. It works fine manually in the cmd prompt, but not with shell execute (or WinExec either).

What does it take to make this work?
