I think the problem you are having is that the Windows command line interpreter doesn't understand your command " start  C:/ cmdow". This is because 'Cmdow' is not a native Windows program. To quote from the web-site you referenced -



It is a small standalone executable. It does not create any temporary files, nor does it write to the registry. There is no installation procedure, just run it. To completely remove all traces of it from your system, delete it.


You need to download the executable file - presumably cmdow.exe - save it to your desktop or somewhere equally accessible and run it when you want to.


Please note :-  The above is explanation only. In no way am I offering any referral or guarrantee about this product. Until I saw your topic I had never heard of it !

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
