[Tex/LaTex] How to enable shell-escape in TeXworks


I require use of the minted package of similar one which support Prolog syntax-highlighting.

Given that I use the TeXworks "IDE", how do I enable shell-escape?


Though I attempted—see above—I still receive this in my output:

! Package minted Error: You must invoke LaTeX with the -shell-escape flag.

I have defined a new tool called pdflatex+shellescape:

And this is the console output if I run it on a file:

The log shows that the --shell-escape option has been activated. With MiKTeX you can call it --enable-write18, but since it understands also --shell-escape it's better to stick with the more general one.
