1. You can control another application using the System.Diagnostics.Process class.  You can even redirect output and input of a console (i.e. DOS) application.

2. There are some 3rd party tools that can help you accomplish this.  Two that come to mind are Salamander .NET Linker and Mini-Deployment Tool (http://www.remotesoft.com/linker/) and Thinstall (http://thinstall.com/help/index.html?_netsupport.htm).

Here is one example:

I know they are very expensive.  If  you find a .NET linker that is free, let me know!
