You may try:

Private Const SW_HIDE = 0
Private Const SW_SHOWNORMAL = 1
Private Declare Function ShellExecute _
    Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" ( _
    ByVal hwnd As Long, _
    ByVal lpOperation As String, _
    ByVal lpFile As String, _
    ByVal lpParameters As String, _
    ByVal lpDirectory As String, _
    ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long

Private Sub Form_Click()
    ShellExecute 0&, vbNullString, "C:\ExFolder\Exe1.exe", vbNullString, "C:\PjtFolder\Pjt1.vbp  \make", SW_HIDE
    ShellExecute 0&, vbNullString, "C:\ExFolder\Exe2.exe", vbNullString, "C:\PjtFolder\Pjt2.vbp  \make", SW_HIDE
End Sub

You could use an add-in for the VB-IDE, that could look something like that:

Public VBInstance As VBIDE.VBE

Sub test()
   Dim oThisProject As VBIDE.VBProject
   
   ' Instead of ActiveVBProject you can pick any open project from the .projects - collection, maybe in a loop
   Set oThisProject = VBInstance.ActiveVBProject
   
   oThisProject.BuildFileName = "e:\test.exe"
   oThisProject.MakeCompiledFile
End Sub

To create the addin you should use the template provided by the IDE (new Project - Add-in). Once you have it running and compiled you can now add this to another VB-session and start it like any other addin.
