Run a batch file in a command window via Webstorm

Using webstorm 5 on Windows. I have a .bat file which I would like to be able to invoke via the External Tools menu.
Is there any way I can invoke it and have it pop up in it's own cmd.exe window? Webstorm seems to want to capture the output and show it in a tool window.

I've found a workaround. I created a second batch file, which has only one line:

start <first batch file>.bat

Then I invoke that from the External Tools in webstorm.

Still interested if there's a better way?
