    Running app with system()


    I am using Visual Studio 2008 to develop in c++.

    The app that I'm developing should use a .exe file to record sound from the sound card, using the function system("WaveRecorder.exe "). Unfortunately, this WaveRecorder.exe is waiting for Enter key to stop recording, so my main app is stopped after running the system() func.

    Is there any other func like system() that can be used in a thred way? Or is there any other solution to my problem?

    Best regards,

    Use CreateProcess to start WaveRecorder and control it through a pipe.
