Code: Select all

Run control inetcpl.cpl`,`,4
Control.exe is a shorthand program that invokes rundll32 Shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL.

It also works this way:

Code: Select all

Run % "rundll32 Shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL inetcpl.cpl,,4"
You can also do this:

Code: Select all

Run rundll32 Shell32.dll`,Control_RunDLL inetcpl.cpl,,, PID
WinWaitActive ahk_pid %PID%
Control, TabRight, 4, SysTabControl321, ahk_pid %PID%
Maybe you want to access a specific dialog from that tab page. For example (untested):

Code: Select all

DllCall("connect.dll\CreateVPNConnection", "Ptr", 0, "UInt", 0, "UInt", 0, "UInt", 0, "Ptr", 0, "WStr", "", "UInt")

@Alguimist Thank you so much.
Based on yours I got what I wanted - LAN Settings:

Code: Select all

Run % "rundll32 Shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL inetcpl.cpl,,4",,, PID
WinWaitActive ahk_pid %PID%
send,!l

About DllCall I know nothing, your line works, but for inetcpl.cpl, I guess it's not a dll ?
