The following js-snippet works fine for me:

function runProgram( aExe, theArgs )
	const FP = new Components.Constructor(
		"nsILocalFile", "initWithPath" );

	var myFile = new FP( aExe );

	var myProc = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/process/util;1"].
		createInstance( Components.interfaces.nsIProcess );

	myProc.init( myFile );
	return myProc.run( false, theArgs, theArgs.length );
