Is there a way to open another software that is installed into my pocket pc, not by clicking on the software itself, but through my codes?

Hi,

CreateProcess(
LPCWSTR lpszImageName,
LPCWSTR lpszCmdLine,
LPSECURITY_ATTRIBUTES lpsaProcess,
LPSECURITY_ATTRIBUTES lpsaThread,
BOOL fInheritHandles,
DWORD fdwCreate,
LPVOID lpvEnvironment,
LPWSTR lpszCurDir,
LPSTARTUPINFOW lpsiStartInfo,
LPPROCESS_INFORMATION lppiProcInfo);

It runs under Windows ce.

Example:

STARTUPINFO si = { sizeof(STARTUPINFO) };
PROCESS_INFORMATION pi = {0};
BOOL bSuccess;

bSuccess = CreateProcess ( NULL, "C:\\Program Files\\Internet xplorer\\IEXPLORE.exe ", NULL, NULL, FALSE, NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS,
NULL, NULL, &si, &pi );
//TerminateProcess to close the application

if(bSuccess){
TerminateProcess(pi.hProcess ,1);
CloseHandle ( pi.hThread );
CloseHandle ( pi.hProcess );

Good Luck!

>>NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS
Can't seems to be suppported, so I change it to 0

The other application is unable to be open. I also realised that whne my applicationn runs, it failed to enter the if(bSuccess) loop.

You can use ShellExecuteEx:

            SHELLEXECUTEINFO info;
            info.cbSize = sizeof(info);
            info.dwHotKey = 0;
            info.fMask = SEE_MASK_NOCLOSEPROCESS;
            info.hIcon = 0;
            info.hkeyClass = 0;
            info.hwnd = 0;
            info.lpClass = NULL;
            info.lpDirectory = "\adirectory";    <------- give correct directory here
            info.lpFile = "app.exe";     <------- give correct application name or doc's filename here
            info.lpIDList = NULL;
            info.lpParameters = NULL;
            info.lpVerb = TEXT("open");
            info.nShow = SW_SHOW;
            ShellExecuteEx(&info);

info.lpDirectory = _T("\\Program Files\\Veo Travler\\Veo\\");    
info.lpFile = _T("VeoTravler.exe");  

Where did I go wrong?

Yes. Tried.

I suppose the directory goes that way? Or did I miss anything else at the beginning?

Make a test with this variant:
info.lpFile = TEXT("\\Windows\\PWord.exe");
info.lpDirectory = NULL;
