Please learn to ask good questions. In this case specifically:

Tell us what you are doing to "run from outside". Be as specific and 
thorough as possible.

Tell us what results you are getting. Be as specific and thorough as 

"Doesn't run" and "doesn't recognize" are too vague.

Post your script if not too large else use a pastebin and provide the link.
