Here is how Scribus launches GIMP on Win32 from within Scribus:
The default on windows is:
C:/Program Files/GIMP-2.0/bin/gimp-win-remote.exe gimp-2.2.exe
This will then either start a new instance of gimp or use the
currently running version of gimp. This is the command you would need
to use for the Start > Run dialog.
If I am wrong, I hope someone corrects this.
Hope that helps.
