It's been a LONG time since I looked at BASIC, but I think you want:

shell app.path + "\..\game.exe",1

nope didn't work.

when i msgbox it. c:\folder\folder\folder\game\DATA\..\game.exe

would i have to write a code that would remove
c:\folder\folder\folder\game\DATA\game.exe

and if i do i dont know how to.

Hmm. Try:

shell """" + app.path + "\game.exe""",1

That's just a wild guess, but I can't see why it wouldn't take a path with a \..\ in it. It's not like I have VB to test it though.
