Resolution:
Yes, you can call a Windows program within the Runtime on a Magelis iPC.  The script you need to use is: 

Sys.createProcess

Function
Only available on XBTGTW and iPC Series targets. Starts an application program on the target machine.

Format
    int Sys.createProcess(String processName, String args);

Parameters

Parameter                          Description
String processName            Enter the complete path and file name of the application program.
                                          Use double slashes between drive and directory names.
                                          e.g. C:\\Winnt\\Notepad.exe
                                          The slash is used to denote special characters, such as tab "\t" and new line "\n". 
                                          The extra backslash is required to override the special character designation.
 
String args                          Enter an argument here when required by the program. Enter an empty string ("") 
                                          when there is no argument.

Return Value
Returns 0                             when the process ends abnormally. Otherwise, returns the value of the handle. This
                                           handle number is required to terminate a process.
