Following is not specific to sudo.


When you execute an OS command in any application the following applies
1. The command to run the executable
2. What happens AFTER the executable starts running.

The first represents the command (binary exe) and the command line options that the command accepts.

What happens with the second depends on the command. But a normal command (non-UI) will be using STDIO (stdin, stdout, stderr.)

The second can NOT be controlled with 'parameters'. Only the first can. The only way you can interact with the second in an application is by accessing the STDIO of the application as it runs.

The second becomes more complicated if the application has a GUI. It can also be more complicated in specific situations depending on exactly what the application does. (There is a way to bypass STDIO.)

For sudo and the first and the way you are executing it with "QP->start" you can only do what the command line options for the command allow. I suspect sudo probably varies by the specific OS. But following is one example.

sudo(8) - Linux manual page[^]

There is no way to change that. Either it is allowed by that or it isn't.

Additionally "start" might have a specific meaning on Windows which can also impact what happens. That doesn't mean is actually applies in this case.

start | Microsoft Learn[^]
