You should better use

  Application.Terminate;
  WinExec(CmdLine,SW_SHOWNORMAL);

which also passes command line parameters.

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  FullProgPath: PChar;
begin
  FullProgPath := PChar(Application.ExeName);
  WinExec(FullProgPath, SW_SHOW); // Or better use the CreateProcess function
  Application.Terminate; // or: Close;
end;
