If you are using Mac-OS go right to step 5.
Linux, step 6.

Step 1: Not Even Blocked
P.S. I am assuming you are using a version of Windows if you are even here. I don't think Macs even have command prompt...
Step 2: No Run? No Difference!
Step 3: Using Notepad to Make a Shortcut.
That is all you have to type. Now save it as a file with the extension .bat. Now go run it by double clicking.
STILL doesn't work? Try the next step.
Step 4: Use a Batch File
Look at the two images below. Can you tell which one is real?
Step 5: Mac OS X
For information about Unix commands, see Introduction to Unix commands.
This infromation was quoted from here.
Step 6: Xubuntu
1: Use a file manager to go to the binary and run it. For me, it's under "usr > bin > xfce4-terminal".
2: Use some command-line to run it. Type either "x-terminal-emulator" or "exec x-terminal emulator".
3: A shortcut. My system (xubuntu, modded beyond recognition with openbox) isn't normal and I just have the shortcut in the right-click menu. If you're making a shortcut, just tell it to execute "x-terminal-emulator".
Anywhere you see "x-terminal-emulator" here you can also use "xfce4-terminal". The first thing is actually just a shell script pointing to the second thing.
If the file has restricted access and you don't know the password, then you're sunk.
This applies to most Linux systems (if not all of them), but you may have to change the file names (anything that I've put in quotes).
