Hello everybody!

im trying to develop an application that runs in kiosk mode, and i need to call to PocketWord, PocketExcel, etc.. executable files (i mean, i need to execute them trought my application).

Someone knows which is the correct code to do this??
I suppose that, if i can call a command like ( execute "word.exe") or something like this, it will be perfect.

Thanks in advance!

A little example :

res = CreateProcess( L"MyCalledApp.exe",
            L"/S /T", //Command line parameters (ex: file to open)
            NULL,
            NULL,
            NULL,
            CREATE_NEW_CONSOLE,
            NULL,
            NULL,
            NULL,
            &pi);

Just have a look to the CreateProcess API ;)

Thanks for the help!

now i see that, when i close my application, Pocket Word (for example) continues executing,
i mean, if u take a look to the execution list, is still there.
I want that the process terminate when i close Pocket word and i return to my application.
I try make it with TerminateProcess, but i see is still there.

Someone know what is happening?

Thanks in advance.
