Hi

What VB.net code would I use to run the Setup.exe file of a later version of a Windows Form
project in the startup code of a current if that is possible?

Hi Murbro,

If you want it to act like it was you opening the setup.exe file in windows, you can just use something like this:

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(File) ' Where File is the path to the file you want to run

Open in new window


You can do this for any type of file and let windows decided how to open it.
If you want to monitor it theres a bit more to it, just refer to the different parameters available.
