Hi,

I want to know how to open an exe file in the windows form.. Basically I want to open an Antivirus exe file (C:\ Program Files\Norton AntiVirus\Navw32.exe) when I click the button function… can I use the OpenFileDialog component? If possible can I get the code please…. and I need it as soon as possible.

Cheers

What do you mean by "opening"? Do you want to RUN this exe? In that case, use this code:

Process.Start("C:\Program Files\Norton AntiVirus\Navw32.exe")

This is the solution to your problem, use the following code to open the Antivirus software:

Shell("C:\ Program Files\Norton AntiVirus\Navw32.exe", AppWinStyle.NormalFocus)

That will do it for you. Hope that helps!
