Command is:

You must replace "C:\\Cpp\\ExpertExchange\\2x.exe" with your second program exact location.
ShellExecute(NULL, NULL,"C:\\Cpp\\ExpertExchange\\2x.exe",NULL, NULL, SW_SHOWNORMAL);

Open in new window

Open in new window

No need to include dos.h for this function.

doesn't work.

Here is what I typed

HINSTANCE H;

H = ShellExecute(NULL, NULL, "C:\\Projects\\2PC\\Debug,NULL,NULL,SW_SHOWNORMAL");





I get 2 errors

error 2001: newline in constant    // I don't see any newlines

error 2143: syntax error: missing ')' before string  // don't see any parentheses missing

Not needed... I found that I had an extra quotation mark at the end before the closing parentheses
that was causing the errors.

Thanks it works great.
