Use WinExec or CreateProcess.
Example:  WinExec('C:\WhatEver\Netscape.exe', SW_SHOWNORMAL);

I think you'll find that I gave you more info than you asked for:
"What is the command to run other app?" ... "In Turbo Pascal this command is: exec(); I need to know what is the command in Delphi."

I gave you TWO commands, and an example.  If you know how to use Exec in Turbo Pascal, then WinExec shouldn't need much explaining...  CreateProcess was merely there for your info.  Delphi's helpfile will spoon-feed the rest to you.

By the way, you're welcome.
