Launching an application from my program
I've gone over the FAQ regarding this issue, but I can't get the Windows implementation method to work. I think I know why, but I'm not sure how to go about getting around it.
I'm trying to allow the user to launch an external application once they are done with the current one (launch it from the current app). I have a MessageBox() control, and if they choose yes I run a function with CreateProcess() to launch the program by passing the filepath of a JAR File.
I've been looking around for a solution all afternoon, and I've looked up about the JAR format. I guess since it's a container-like file associated with the Java runtime environment (and thus only able to be launched through file ext association), I can't launch it independently from my program. But there has to be a way around this.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
