In Windows, you can invoke commands using the /c switch for the cmd.exe command, passing the command to run in escaped quotes (…”). For example, the following retrieves the current time and displays it to the user:
var timeStr = system.callSystem("cmd.exe /c "time /t");
alert("Current time is " + timeStr);
