All you need is execute from your command prompt (for a java .class):

   java mainfile.class (main application)
   appletviewer miapplet.class

You must specify this command lines in your c function for execute programs from command prompt.

Bye... :)

Is a .class file executable?   I've never heard of it.

You can run any executable program (anything you can run from a command line) using the system() command.  Like

system("C:\PROGRAMMS\\WINWORD.EXE");

will run the WINWORD.EXE program.

In addition, there may be other ways to run programs on your operating system.  But since you didn't say what operating system you are using so we can't suggest any.

You don't have to accept it if it doesn't help you, but you do need to explain why it didn't help you.   When you reject and answer with no comment, it is not clear what was wrong so no one knows what to help you.  Also it looks like you might be cheating the system--rejecting a correct answer so you don't have to pay for it.
