    You don't. You can use the SetParent API to make an existing window a child of a window of your own. You can call Process.Start to start another process and then use the SetParent API. There will be plenty of examples around if you search, usually using Notepad as the external app.

    The only way Ive done it so far:
    Using a webbrowser that goes the the URL with your game on it
    Using a .swf control that can run swf files on your form, but the game would have to be a shockwave file and you would need to download it.
