I might found the answer myself but correct me if I'm wrong:

I was trying to pass some args (ex. echo testing) that I tried 
to exec but fail.  But, if I put the "echo testing" inside a 
batch file and have the exec to call that batch file, then it works.

There is also a function call escapeshellcmd to screen out
any bad tricks.

If there is other better ways to do thing, please share.
