If you know the .cpl filename you can use Shell:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Shell "Control.exe appwiz.cpl", 1 ' will open add remove programs
End Sub

If you don't know the name,you can probably do a find on your c: drive for *.cpl,then it should be easy to figure out which one it is from the filename.

I found the right applet to get the cammeras and scanners to come up. I appologize but this is not what I need after all. vinnyd79, I will split points with you if when this question is answered as your answer is correct, just not what I needed.

I need the form that comes up when you click configure in Windows Encoder 9.
