You can use system command to do this :

#include <stdlib.h>

void main(){
  system("c:\dos\edit.com");
}

If it didn't work try to run this program out of C enveronment, run your exe file, for example if this C program named ( prog1.c ) run in the Dos prompt prog1.exe because C environment occupy mush memory, so that the external programs you wish to run can not find the enought memory to be run.
