Do you need a separate utility? MAME has options for running in a window...

http://docs.mamedev.org/commandline/commandline-all.html

Quote:


-[no]window / -[no]w

Run MAME in either a window or full screen. The default is OFF (-nowindow).

-[no]maximize / -[no]max

Controls initial window size in windowed mode. If it is set on, the window will initially be set to the maximum supported size when you start MAME. If it is turned off, the window will start out at the smallest supported size. This option only has an effect when the -window option is used. The default is ON (-maximize).

Have you tried escaping with the '^' character like I suggested earlier?

Here's more info...

Something like this...

start "TEMPEST" CMD.EXE /C ^(C:\Games\Emu\Arcade\Mame0.198b\mame64.exe tempest3.zip -rp F:\ROMs\Arcade -skip_gameinfo -screen \\.\DISPLAY3 -triplebuffer -throttle -sleep -refreshspeed -sound none -flicker 0.6 ^> tempestLog.txt 2^>^&1^)
