    Exclamation Programmatically Starting/Stopping Apps

    I am very interested in being able to start and stop applications programatically.

    Was curious whether it will be more difficult to do this in upcoming releases of Windows 7 and in future releases of the Microsoft OS.

    Re: Welcome to the Microsoft Experts!


    This is pretty easy, you can just invoke Process.Start and feed it the executable you want. E.g.

    System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("CMD.exe IExplore.exe");

    There are no changes (that I'm aware of) to how this would work in Windows 7.

    But if you have more questions about this please start a new thread since it's off topic for this one.
