Hi. first off I'm fairly new to VB but like experts-exchange very much!

 Question: I'de like to know how to load a commercial program like 'SuperAntiSpyware.exe' or any program.exe into my Visual Basic Form.??

 Example: I would create a Form and a button for program.exe. Clicking the button, the commercial program I've installed on my computer would load into that form. The program would not load beside the form but within the confines of the forms window.

Any help with a code sample would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

You would have to write a program that did it all externally. You will not be able to open an exe in any of the vb editors.
