Solved Help with Start and new Window

Specs: Windows 7
This is a weird one for me, and the answer is probably so simple I am just over looking it.

Trying to incorporate an AV update in a batch for our deployed laptops.

By use the Start --> Run in windows all works well.

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\msseces.exe /update

When I try to put this in the batch file ...

start "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\msseces.exe /update"

all i get is a new cmd window with that as the title and no action, any ideas?

Try Start "Title" path etc...................
