I need some code that will allow me to launch the Run box (The one directly under the Start button). I've tried looking for an executable for it but it doesn't seem to exist. Any ideas?

I realize I can execute commands using Shell but for a  demostration I need to launch the Run Box.

Are you saying there is another way to execute a command inside my app just like it was executed in the run box? I would be interested in that also.

Shell() would be fine if I could launch the Run Box with it. I was unable to find what file to execute with Shell() in order to get the Run Box to open up. This is for a demostration on using the Run Box not for me to launch an application.

I think you'ld have to create your own form that *looks like* the run box.
