Launching one program from another
Posted on 2013-01-20
My VB6 application consists of two program executables. They communicate via shared data files. For that reason, it is most convenient if they both are installed in the same folder.
Installers all seem to assume there will be just one "main" exe. (I am using InnoScript.)
Combining my two applications into one is possible, but that will require a lot of code re-write. (Duplicate declarations, and all that.)
I thought of building a simple front-end "dashboard" with just two command buttons (plus "Exit" of course). Each button is to launch one of my two program executables.
I don't know how to do that. How does one launch one program from another?
