    If all you're asking is how to run a program from code then the answer is to call Process.Start.

    Re: How To Lunch exe program from vb project in any PC

    I think you need to use a bit of common sense here. That code is going to work on any machine as long as the app you specify to run exists. If it doesn't exist then obviously it can't run. Unless you can provide some meaningful information about the error that suggests otherwise, I can only assume that the program you're specifying doesn't exist.

    It won't, and why would you expect it to? You can't magically run software on a computer that isn't there. If you want to run a program then the program has to actually be there. It's that simple.

    I'm going to take all of these statements together, apply some assumptions, mix in a blender and see if I can come out with the more correct solution...

    It sounds like you want to package multiple pre-existing apps into your app, then have your application extract them and run them when the user clicks a button. That's what installers are for. I don't recommend writing your own, because there are parts of the system it needs to write to (potentially) that Windows isn't going to let you have access to (but a properly registered installer would).

    Also, a lot of viruses work this way... by packaging themselves inside another app... so it's possible that your app could get flagged as a potential threat.

    I think he means he has a program and there will be other exe files in the deployed folder that his app will want to be able to run, if so then Application.StartupPath is what he's looking for when calling any of those other exe files.

    I thought we already answered this, you have the exe files in the same folder as your app's exe file (I'm assuming an installer will guarantee that), then when the user selects (or does whatever to run) one of the programs you combine the Application.StartupPath with the exe file and and pass it to a Process.Start() to run it.
    You can even use Directory.GetFiles() with Application.StartupPath to get the list of files as needed too.

    You're a beginner, not a vegetable. You've been told exactly what to do so now is where you make an effort to do it. Don't just assume that you can't and expect others to do for you. If you have an issue, then you can post what you've tried and we can tell you how to correct it.

    Directory.GetFiles Method (String) (System.IO)
    Application.StartupPath Property (System.Windows.Forms)

    If that's too advanced for you, I'd suggest learning up on vb.net and programming in general: VB.Net Tutorial

    Bro, did you put any thought into it? What does Directory.GetFiles do? Have you made any effort to find out? It takes a folder path and returns an array of file paths for the files in that folder. What does Application.StartupPath do? Have you made any effort to find out? It returns a folder path. Can you put 2 and 2 together? If you sit there and expect the information to come to you then you should not be surprised when you get no information.

    You can use an OpenFileDialog for getting the file (program) to run.

    Then in the other button you can use Process.Start() to run it.

    *le sigh*
    vb.net Code:
    1. Imports System.IO
    2.  
    3. Public Class Form1
    4.  
    5.     Private m_Process As Process
    6.  
    7.     Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
    8.         TextBox1.ReadOnly = True
    9.     End Sub
    10.  
    11.     Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
    12.         Dim ProgramFileName As String = Path.GetFileName(Application.ExecutablePath).ToLower
    13.         Using ofd As New OpenFileDialog With {.InitialDirectory = Application.StartupPath, .Title = "Select a program to run", .DefaultExt = "exe", .Filter = "Exe Files|*.exe", .AddExtension = True}
    14.             If ofd.ShowDialog(Me) <> DialogResult.Cancel AndAlso Not ofd.FileName.ToLower.EndsWith(ProgramFileName) Then TextBox1.Text = ofd.FileName
    15.         End Using
    16.     End Sub
    17.  
    18.     Private Sub Button2_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
    19.         m_Process = Process.Start(TextBox1.Text)
    20.     End Sub
    21.  
    22. End Class
    That's only for using an OpenFileDialog, like was discussed before, you can load those program's file names into something like a ComboBox that way the available options are given to them and you simply grab the file name selected and append the Applicatio.StartupPath and run it.
