Default problem with the run dialog....

I've always wanted a command line dictionary (well run rather than command line), after doing a bit of searching, the best things I found was along with this little app. Now everything works fine except for the fact when I type "dict [word I am looking for]" into the run dialog it loads the command prompt and quickly shuts it down once the results are found?

How can I sort this out?

instead of typing in the command from the Run dialog box, in the run dialog box, type "cmd" first and then enter to bring up the command line window. Then use your "dict...." command.

Yeah, I know that works. But the whole point of me using the dict command was to use it as fast as possible. If I have to do all that, I might as well use firefox with the search plugin.

Anyone have any idea how to sort this out?
