Hey all, I have an idea for a little program that I'd like to code in VB.NET. The idea is very simple: the program will simply launch other programs. For example, there will be a button to lauch, say, Word and another to launch Excel. Any ideas on what to use to code this? I've been looking for hours but couldn't find anything useful. Thanks.

Try this:
System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("Path to EXE")

Thanks. I'll try that out once I finish my class here and get home.

That worked perfectly! Thanks a lot! Just one question though, is there a cetain book or tutorial or something where you would find that information? Because I was looking for hours in the MSDN Library and Google for this. Thanks again.
