Hello

  use SetParent API to do that, First get the handle using FindWindow, then use the SetParent to set the new handle of the application

Here's a sample to insert notepad into your form

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  H : THandle;
begin
  H := FindWindow('Notepad',nil);
  if H >0 then
    Windows.SetParent(H,Handle)
end;

HTH
