I there a way to run one VB application from inside another VB application

Hi.... are the days of DOS batch files gone...? Is there a way of running a VB application from another VB application... the way batch files used to execute tasks one after the other...?

Assuming that I have a small VB application that copies or create folders on a drive... and another small VB application that does some thing after the first application is executed... is there a way to make the first application star, and when it accomplishes its task have the second application do its work....?

Use SHELL function to run any executable file.
Syntax:

Shell(pathname[,windowstyle])

Note: the Shell function runs programs asynchronously
