If you are at command prompt why do you want to access the Run Dialog Box?

You can directly type your command from the current prompt window.

I am well aware of this. But I want to know if it can be accessed through the command prompt. If not, where is Run located? I couldn't find it in the WINDOWS folder

It's contained in shell32.dll, as an undocumented and unnamed function. Why are you trying to open the dialog?

What Why?

The "Run Window" just runs an item at the command prompt (Explorer) level so there is no need for the run window you simply type the command at the prompt. There is not executable for it because it is part of the API as stated above.

So why do you need this? What problem are you trying to solve?
