Invoking apps within VB

P: n/a
Hi,
We have a few apps that we would like to invoke from withing our program.
Suggestions? Should I create a seperate thrread to run the app in.
The idea is to call excel for example from within our vb.exe
Thanks in advance,
Al

No you don't have to use threads... Just use System.Diagnostics.Process ,
class that should get you to open applications outside of your application,
using this you can call the FilePath or any executable path...

if you are looking to opening excel or word files within your application,
then use the WebBrowser Control
