Please be more specific about what "is not working" means.

What shell are you using from the command line?

What error are you receiving? (If any - it's just as important for us to know if you get no response from the shell)

Please use code and icode tags. Is it just first? Not, first.bat, something like that?

What happens if you type:

Always use absolute path if you are trying to run an executable that is not defined in PATH environment variable in BASH. So you should try:-
/path_of_isumid/isumid 98765432

Or add absolute path of executable isumid to PATH env variable.
export PATH="$PATH:/path_of_isumid"

I hope this helps.
