    Running another program in windows

    When using windows, how do you run some other program using c++?

    The reason I ask is because I'm trying to get past my school's anti-program running program and I need to unzip some stuff and can't run winzip. If, by chance, anybody knows anything about Novell network software, please tell me how to get past this program.

    Code:
    system("c:\\folder\\executable.exe");
    What os are you running at school?

    I doubt you can get around it, if the permissions are properly set, because your executable that you run won't have any higher privilages than you.
    You ever try a pink golf ball, Wally? Why, the wind shear on a pink ball alone can take the head clean off a 90 pound midget at 300 yards.

    Closed - this is attempting to gain access to computers you don't own (hacking).

    If you have a problem, go talk to your school sysadmin about what it is you really want to achieve.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
