If you can determine the name of the executable (the Task Manager might help here), a hearty

ShellExecute(NULL,_T("open"),_T("AudioTuningWizard.exe"),NULL,NULL,SW_SHOW);

should do that.

ok but I believe that there are no executable file for the tuning wizard. I believe some api call is the answer.

Still waiting...

When you run the Wizard and check the Task Manager, what process does it point to?

A rundll.exe process appears ! I believe that is a Comm method to call this. This is extremely urgent here !

'rundll32.exe' loads a DLL and executes a function passed as an argument - use the code at http://www.winterdom.com/dev/ptk/cmdline.c to get that command line and you are done, just pass the same command to 'ShellExecute()'.

Thanks a lot for the help but Well, no good news. Actually the tuning wizard does not start any new process so the code cannot help me. The rundll process is created by the windows multimedia configuration so, I'm at the start point.

That's not really weird, just some not so well known way Windows launches some helpers. Try
ShellExecute(NULL,_T("open"),_T("rundll32.exe"),_T("C:\windows\system32\shell32.dll,Control_rundll C:\windows\system32\mmsys.cpl,@0"),NULL,SW_SHOW);

Open in new window
