I remember coming across this function some time ago that let you open any .exe from within your own C++ app. Only I can't remember the name of it. Help me out someone? Thanks

The function is called ShellExecute (or a more modern version: ShellExecuteW). Check 'em out on MSDN to find out how they work and stuff.

There's a bunch. ShellExecute, CreateProcess, the exec* family, even system. They all have various pros and cons; investigate them all and determine which works best for you.
