Hello, I was wondering if there was some way of running an application from within a Visual C++ application. I want an option in a menu to open up a text file in notepad that has documentation in it for the program. I thought there was some command such as Shell("notepad.exe") that could be called to run something but i cant find any documentation on anything of the sort. Thanks for the help.
