    What is the command to start another program from within a Visual Basic 6 program? I remember it having something to do with cmd or something... I just wanna launch iexplore by pressing a button.

    i believe there is also exec, if you have msdn its one of the best source to look for these sort of things.

    Yeah i had a look on MSDN Library, where I also found exec, but it looks as though thats something to do with SQL. MSDN is more for looking how to use a command you know of, rather than trying to find a command that does something you want it too.
