1) You do not need to open a cmd window separately. You can use
start command followed by path of exe. Check here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/221730/bat-file-to-run-a-exe-at-the-command-prompt
2) To read arguments you can use a statement like:
set /p name= What is your name? which prompts user with question "What is your name?" and accepts the input in variable 'p'.
