Run without wait

I have tried many methods but cannot seem to find an option to start a program without waiting for it to terminate. I liken this option to starting a program once installation has finished but my application is different in that I must launch multiple programs that do not terminate before the installation has completed. The commands I execute work just fine from a DOS command line but do not function the same way in any "Exec" function I have tried.
One example I am using is, after I install NetTime service, I try to run NetTime.exe which opens a window to validate the settings. This window never terminates, it just minimizes to the right side Windows task bar location.
Every attempt I have tried results in one of two outcomes.
1.) Installation hangs until I close NetTime
2.) Installation completes but the NetTime.exe program never starts.
Can anyone make a suggestion?

Neither "Exec" nor "ExecShell" waits for the child process.
