I am working on a program for my job. It is starting off very simple right now but I will take it a whole lot further as time goes on. I have a very simple question right now though cause I can't seem to figure it out and I am sure that it is just something I am overlooking.
My question is how do I open another program from the program I am making. I know how to modify text files and make scripts and all that. I have the path to the exe files, I just am not sure how to make it so that I can tell it to open "Program A.exe".
In case anybody needs to know, I am using Visual C++ .Net.
Well you could do system("path and name of exe"); or shellexecute()(I think :) )
I will have to give it a try, thanks!
WinExec or CreateProcess if you're doing a windows app.
The reason would be that system() causes a console window to pop up in a windows app. If you're already a console app, system() is better.
That is good to know, the first version of my app is console. But all later versions after it will be Windows.
Thanks for the info!
