How can I open another program throughout my project

Hi,

How can I load and open another program installed on my PC by clicking Command1 in form1?
For example: I want to open Acrobat Reader program by clicking Command1 ?
Its path is: "D:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 4.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe"

Please provide me with complete Code for doing that.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
