I'm trying to launch a 3rd party analyzer .exe on XP; double-clicking in
explorer runs as normal.
From Python, I've tried startfile(), system(), spawnl(), and popen(), with

process can be killed from the task manager.
os.startfile should "act like double-clicking the file in Windows
Explorer", but it seems to not be the case. Is there a Win32 method that
might be effective?
I tried win32api.WinExec, win32process.CreateProcess (with various modes),
