Ok VBlings,
From a standard EXE I would like to call (Shell) a Java Application.
Now, if you have seen Java Applications work before, they must be called by the command
line...
jview myapp.class
Thats to my knowledge at least and in this case, this is how it works. (myapp.class)

Please feel free to comment or even answer the question if you have a good method in
calling (shelling) a Java Application.

Remember, I am NOT talking of Java Applets, so please no answers or comments for using the
Web Browser Control.

Thank you.

Shelled applications are called just like you would call it from the command line.

So, in your example, the line which would shell to your Java app would look like this:
RetVal = Shell("jview myapp.class")
RetVal will contain the task id of the shelled app.

As a note, unless jview and/or myapp.class are in your path, you may have to specify the path.

Just that simple.
What a waste of valuable points!
Nothing personal. : )
