    The system function runs the command you pass it, just like Start->Run. It uses a command prompt to do so, but it is still the same. There are other Windows specific functions that are more advanced and might be what you are looking for. Searching the Windows forum would help you there.

    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.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    So how can I make a child program(GUI, invisible) send a message to a parent program(GUI). I want to use the spawn thing to run my child program (using NOWAIT) and notify parent program, when ready.
