Multiple Actions in One Command

Someone asked this a few years ago but I haven't been able to make the proposed solution work. Ideally, all I really want to do is use foo_random_pools to immediately skip to a new random album; it doesn't matter how I accomplish that. The proposed solution is to use foo_run to start foobar from within itself using command line parameters. That makes sense (albeit it's convoluted) but when I try something as simple as using foo_run to pause foobar using the example cited above, I get the Program Files folder to pop up and nothing else.

Any ideas or new plugins available?

I'm trying to achieve something similar but instead of trying to skip/play/pause actions I'd like to switch multiple PSS global variables to a different value.

The proposed solution on the previous thread works, I'm not sure what OP is doing but this for example to go to next song and then pause works fine:
Code: [Select]
cmd /c start "1" "Z:\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe" "/command:next" & ping -n 1>nul & start "2" "Z:\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe" "/command:pause" & ping -n 1>nul

However I'm trying to use this method to setglobal in PSS, this doesn't work however:
Code: [Select]
cmd /c start "1" "Z:\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe" "SETGLOBAL:_ELP.TYPE:3;%_REFRESH%;REFRESH" & ping -n 1>nul & start "2" "Z:\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe" "SETGLOBAL:_BACKART:0;%_REFRESH%;REFRESH" & ping -n 1>nul

All this does is pop up a cmd window for a flash and nothing happens. I'm not getting an error message however so I believe I'm on the right track here.
Any advice?
I tried changing to
Code: [Select]
Code: [Select]
Code: [Select]
all of these give an unknown commandline paramater error.

Forget all the above, doesn't work. See PSS thread for solution.
