You can use the Shell command if you know the exact path to the EXE. Otherwise, if the EXE has an extension association (for example, Word Documents launch into MS Word) you can use the ShellExecute API call. Depending on your situation you can look up Shell in the VB help (MSDN) or search the board for numerous past posts on the ShellExecute API call. (I've also posted a brief tutorial on the ShellExecute API call today that's waiting to be approved by the webmaster).
